A wine merchant is called a vintner. The production of wine itself is known as winemaking. The process usually begins with the selection of produce such as grapes or other fruits and plants, which ends with bottling of the finished product (wine).
Although grapes come from different regions of certain parts of the world, it is the winemaker’s touch
that greatly affect the end result – wine flavor – and every winery has their own method of perfection to produce a good finished product. The twitch is what differentiates one winery’s product from that of another.
Still wine production and sparkling wine production are the two general categories in which winemaking can be divided – without carbonation (natural) or with carbonation (injected). When the predominant ingredient after water is honey, the finished product is mead.
