Basics to Wine.


So, what is wine?

Wine is wine grape juice that has fermented. A wine grape is not the normal grape you find in your supermarket, no. Wine grapes are small, sweet, have thick skin, and contain a lot of seeds.

Wine grapes consist of two types, the black wine grape, and the white grape, and out of the two, we get different other types of blends.

“When it comes to wine, I tell people to throw away the vintage charts and invest in a corkscrew. The best way to learn about wine is by drinking.” - Alexis Lichine. Follow Lichine’s advice and visit theV.Bar, the app with the best alcohol prices in Nairobi, and order from our diverse wine category and it will be delivered to your doorstep!

Types of Wine

The main types of wine include:

  1. Red Wines

They are made from black grapes fermented with grape seeds, stem, and skins (imparting the red color to the wine) resulting in a wine with a robust flavor. Red wine is high in tannins, which have a bitter, dry taste.

Red wine is usually drunk at slightly below room temperature, this makes the tannins bitterer. It pairs well robust flavored dishes containing red meat, such as BBQ ribs, burgers and steak, pasta, and pizza.

An older red wine will have a less dry and bitter taste to it. The top picks for a perfect bottle of red wine are the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Pinot Noir.


  1. White Wine

White wines are made from both white grapes and black grapes, the twist being its fermentation without the grape skins. It also contains fewer tannins hence bringing out more of its acidic nature which causes the fresh, crisp, and tart flavors in white wine.

White wines are usually drunk cold, this enhances their flavors.

White wine is paired with lighter dishes for example poultry and fish and other seafood, curries, tacos, cheese, salad, popcorn, and chips

The top white wine choices include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or Riesling.


  1. Rosé Wine

Rosé on the other hand is made when the black grape juice is fermented with the skin but for a very short time, creating the blush or pink color. Rosé is also low in tannins just like white wine.

A bottle of Rosé is a great choice as a starter wine because of its light, sweet flavor and goes well when paired with light dishes and snacks, including poultry, fish, fruit, chips and salsa, and cheese.

  1. Sparkling Wine

Sparkling wines are made from black and white grapes, and carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring byproduct of fermentation hence creating the “bubbles’’ effect.

It's best paired with light foods, such as soft cheeses, seafood, including smoked salmon and shrimp, salad, fresh fruit, and popcorn.

Sparkling wine or rather Champagne is always served in tall, slender glasses since these glasses help retain the temperature and the bubbles of sparkling wine.

TheV.Bar has an easy-to-use app that is a game-changer after those stretched-out work from home days. Visit today and order your favorite wine and it will be delivered in 60minutes.


  1. Fortified wine

Fortified wines are grape juice mixed with spirits such as brandy during the fermentation process resulting in having a higher alcohol content than other wines.

These wines are sweetened by the alcohol, hence the ones with lower alcohol content are considered dessert wines and are also paired with desserts. They are perfect when paired with baked goods like tarts, chocolate, cheese, nuts, and other desserts. 

Visit the V.Bar and order everything you need for your impromptu house party, you’ll find excellent spirits and liqueurs, wines, beers, and miniatures, all available with speedy under 1-hour delivery!

Which wine should I buy?

Well, it all depends on your taste buds! Do you prefer sweet or dry wine? Do you like light fruity flavors, or do you prefer richer flavors? Do you prefer wines that are tart or smooth? Do you like full-bodied wines or light-bodied wines?

My top tip for good wine, though…is to drink whatever you like. Take a sip, decide whether you like it or not, and stick to the ones you enjoy most. There’s no right or wrong wine to drink!
