    Correct Answer
    B. Fermentation
    Explanation
    Fermentation is the process in wine production where sugar is converted into alcohol by yeast. It is a crucial step that occurs after the grapes are harvested and crushed. During fermentation, yeast consumes the sugar in the grape juice and produces alcohol and carbon dioxide as byproducts. This process is responsible for the conversion of grape juice into wine. The other options, such as introduction, reduction, and oxidation, are not directly related to the primary process of wine production, making fermentation the correct answer.

    • C.

      Oxidation

    • D.

      Reaction

    Correct Answer
    A. Fermentation
    Explanation
    Red wines are red due to fermentation. During the fermentation process, the natural pigments present in the grape skins, known as anthocyanins, are released into the grape juice. These anthocyanins give red wine its characteristic red color. The longer the grape skins are in contact with the juice during fermentation, the deeper the color of the resulting wine. This is why red wines have a range of shades from light red to dark purple, depending on the grape variety and winemaking techniques used.

The prefix "oen-" is derived from the Greek word for wine, and the suffix "-phobia" indicates a fear or aversion. Therefore, oenophobia accurately represents the fear of wine. Winephobia, Eophobia, and Edophobia are not recognized terms for the fear of wine.
