Daisey welcome to our forum. How about going to the introductions thread and let us know what your making or want to make. Feels free to ask all the questions you want. We look forward to hearing from you.
I have known to many basic terms that are used in wine making but, the list is letting me know some other terms also that I have not heard before and it is always good for all of us to know various terms and ways that are necessary in wine making.
Maturation: The time wine spends in bulk prior to bottling.
Aging: The time wine spends in the bottle before being served.
Variety: A taxonomic subdivision of a species consisting of naturally occurring or selectively bred populations or individuals that differ from the remainder of the species in certain minor characteristics.
Varietal: A wine made from a single grape variety.
