From dry red wine to fruity, jammy blends, what’s the best red wine? The one you like the best! All red wine types, as you might imagine, start with red grapes.
Like rosé, red wine is made through a process called maceration, which involves fermenting the crushed grapes along with their skin. This is what gives the wine its rich, scarlet color. The seeds and skin are then pressed out, and finally, the wine is stored to age before you can enjoy it.

Which Glass Should I Use for Red Wine?
Unlike red wine, white and rosé wines does not need to breathe as extensively. There are two main types of white wine glasses: one for high-acid white wines (think Riesling) and one for full-bodied white wines (think a white Burgundy). White wine glasses do have a longer stem than other wine glass styles, and that is because white wine is served at a colder temperature. The elongated stem allows extra room for the taster’s hand so that the temperature of the wine will not be affected by body heat.
