Red wine is wine that is manufactured from dark-coloured grapes. Contrary to popular belief, the actual colour of red wine is not always red. They can range from violet to brick red and brown, as the wines mature over time. The colouration comes from anthocyanin pigments present in grape skin that is extracted during the production process. Different active molecules in the wine react, giving rise to the change in colour as the wines ages.
Due to them containing colour and tannins, red wines age for great lengths of time and can be preserved for many years, usually improving in flavour and quality. Red wines can make a great enhancement to a restaurant dinner or even lunch, when paired well with the appropriate foods.
