Homemade Wine is a classic symbol of celebration in Kerala and Goa. This special Grape Wine is made with minimal ingredients - sweet black grapes, sugar, dry yeast/whole wheat. 

The mixture of grapes, sugar and yeast is stored in a container for nearly 21 days and then strained into another jar. In order to attain a rich colour, you can add burnt sugar to the wine every now and then.
