Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot noir is a red grape variety. It grows all around the world, mostly in the cooler climates, like Burgundy. This type of wine is difficult to transform and cultivate to wine. It’s very complicated sort of wine when it’s young, it tends to have a fruity aroma, but when it ages it has more vegetable like aroma.



Chardonnay is a grape variety which is used in the production of white wines. It also originated from Burgundy.  It’s an important component of many sparkling drinks, like Champagne. Chardonnay tends to have aroma very acidly, resembling apples and pears, but if it’s cultivated in warmer locations, it tends to have a more citrusy aroma.

Pinot blanc is often mistaken for Chardonnay. At first glance, this type of grapes look identical, but when you have a better look, differences can be found. It’s used in the production of white wine, which has a smoky and spicy aroma, and moderate acidity.


Technology wine production

Vinification or wine making is a process of wine production, which begins from a selection of grapes, and ends with bottling of wine. Traditionally grapes are harvested from vineyards in autumn. When harvested, grapes most be in good condition, not infected with bacteria or fungal infection.  Wine making must start soon as possible to prevent any complications. There are few steps of wine making.

First is a production of must.  To produce a must or liquid, you have to crush grapes with mechanical crusher, which must be done very carefully. Then comes alcoholic fermentation, which involves adding to the must yeast, sulfur dioxide, and nutrient substances. The fermentation can last up to 8 or 10 days. And the last step is bottling wine, after which can be used for drinking.
