What is it all about? What is wine made from? What is in it? What are we drinking? One substance makes up 80 percent of every single bottle of wine. Can you guess what that 80 percent is? It is not grapes. It is not sugar. Its water! In fact, all manufactured beverages are in the neighborhood of 80 percent water. This is one of the very basics: that wine uses water as a carrier as the base. Of course, we too are made up of 75 percent 80 percent water! Let us clarify; wine makers do not add water to the wine they make to reach 80 percent. This is simply the natural proportion of water in wine. Choose a single grape, and that grape is 75 percent to 85 percent water. Therefore, that is where it begins. Theres no water added; it just comes naturally with the grape. The nature of water itself is another whole story, but it is true that water is colorless and odorless. It can be in three states: liquid, gas, and solid. The atom of water is so unique and is one of the strongest of the atoms. It takes so much energy to be able to break it apart. Water is life itself, and water is the first and the most basic aspect of wine.
