Wine is made of fermented fruit juice mixed with alcohol. One most common fruit used for wine making is grapes. Grapes has special components which makes the fermentation process achieve great results. Different varieties of grapes make different flavors also depending on the aging process.
Wines are also great used in cooking like the usual white and red wines for Italian dishes. Pasta and other meats get such distinct taste when added and cooked with wine. The deep complex flavor heightens the intensity of flavor of the dish. Not to worry about the alcohol content of the wine because as it cooks off, the alcohol simply evaporates.
