I decided to make Grape Wine for our First Christmas inward Charlotte. My friends liked the vino in addition to my friend Hanna had been asking for the recipe for a long fourth dimension but I was also lazy to write close it. Finally, I made upwards my heed in addition to hither is the recipe for Home Made Grape Wine. Traditionally, inward Kerala, vino is made inward a Ceramic Jar called Bharani. Since I didn’t receive got a Ceramic Jar, I bought a construct new Glass Jar for making Wine. I selected pinkish red color grapes for this wine.

Strain the mixture 1 time again using a muslin fabric without disturbing the sediments. If you lot want to caramelize the wine, you lot tin practise it a few days before straining. My vino had a lite pinkish color because of the grapes I used.
13.                        For coloring the wine, I caramelized sugar and added it to the vino in addition to it changed into a rich golden color. You tin add together the caramelized saccharide to the vino a few days before straining it for the 2d fourth dimension from the drinking glass jar. Please refer below for details on coloring the wine.
