The Skinny on Grape Skins

Loaded with tannins….

Tannins come from the grape skins and seeds; they provide colour, flavour and structure, giving that astringent mouth feel characteristic of red wines.  With grape skin wine kits, you are increasing your wine’s exposure to the skins, allowing for more tannins to be extracted and more varietal character to develop, giving you a wine that is truer to its varietal style.

Loaded with antioxidants….

Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grape skins and seeds, has been linked to numerous cardiovascular health benefits, and is one of the main reasons red wine is celebrated as a heart healthy drink.  Antioxidants are found in all wines, but because of their prolonged contact with the grape skins, are most prevalent in reds.

Serving Tip

Powerful, full-bodied reds show best just slightly above room temperature.  Serve tannin-heavy wines at 18-21C (65-70F) to retain their bold qualities.
