Online Wines

Online Wines is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of grape juice. The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients. Online Wines is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast which consume the sugars found in the grapes and convert them into alcohol. Various varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts are used depending on the types of Online Wines produced.

Although other fruits such as apples and berries can also be fermented, the resultant "Online Winess" are normally named after the fruit from which they are produced (for example, apple Online Wines or elderberry Online Wines) and are generically known as fruit Online Wines or country Online Wines (not to be confused with the French term vin du pays). Others, such as barley Online Wines and rice Online Wines (e.g. sake), are made from starch-based materials and resemble beer and spirit more than Online Wines, while ginger Online Wines is fortified with brandy. In these cases, the use of the term "Online Wines" is a reference to the higher alcohol content, rather than production process. The commercial use of the English word "Online Wines" (and its equivalent in other languages) is protected by law in many jurisdictions.

Online Wines has a rich history dating back to around 6000 BC and is thought to have originated in areas now within the borders of Israel, Georgia and Iran. Online Wines probably appeared in Europe at about 4500 BC in what is now Bulgaria and Greece, and was very common in ancient Greece, Thrace and Rome. Online Wines has also played an important role in religion throughout history. The Greek god Dionysos and the Roman equivalent Bacchus represented Online Wines, and the drink is also used in Christian and Jewish ceremonies such as the Eucharist and Kiddush.

The word "Online Wines" derives from the Proto-Germanic *winam, an early borrowing from the Latin vinum, "Online Wines" or "(grape) vine", itself derived from the Proto-Indo-European stem *win-o- (cf. Ancient Greek οῖνος - onos, Aeolic Greek ϝοίνος - woinos). Similar words for Online Wines or grapes are found in the Semitic languages (cf. Arabic ﻭﻳﻦ wayn) and in Georgian (ğvino); some consider the term to be a wanderwort, or "wandering word".
