I purchased wine grape juice without skins from a wine concentrate company. How will that effect the wine?
If you are a person who drinks $20 bottles of wine regularly, you might be disappointed. It most likely won't produce as rich a wine as it might had it been fermented on its own pulp and skins, but it still should produce a nice wine, provided the quality of grapes from which the juice came is good.I live close to Lodi and there is a company (California Concentrates) that works with some of the farms there. During the harvest they sell off the juice fresh for four weekends. So it is wine grape juice. I bought a red blend Merlot\Syrah blend and a French Colombard but they also have other juices.
A friend of mine who has been making wine the last ten years said "No skins means it won't be a good wine." So that's what I'm wondering. It is wine grape juice. Shouldn't it produce a decent wine?
