  Winemaking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Red wine is made from the must (pulp) of red or fl grapes that undergo fermentation together with the grape skins, while white wine is usually made by fermenting juice pressed from white grapes, but can also be made from must extracted from red grapes with minimal contact with the grapes' skins.
The grapes are usually harvested from the vineyard in the fall, in the northern hemisphere from the middle of October until the beginning of November, or the middle of February until the beginning of March in the southern hemisphere.
For red wine, the broken skins stay in contact with the juice (maceration) throughout the fermentation process, while for white wines, the crushed grapes are pressed to ferment the wine without the skins.

 Enology and Winemaking | Wine 101 | Professional Friends of Wine
For most red wines, winemakers crush, sulphite and inoculate the grapes and allow the juice to ferment in contact with the skins and pulp for 2 to 5 days at temperatures between 70° and 80° F (pinot noir is often allowed to go to 95° F).
Wine was sold by the measure and then bottled, with the customer providing the bottles which were often identified with a personal seal.
Wines that are intended for early consumption, where freshness and fruity, floral characteristics are of prime importance, may be kept for extended periods in large refrigerated tanks where these qualities are best preserved.

 Wine Club's Grape Wine Making Process
Without fruit there would be no wine, and no fruit other than grapes can produce annually a reliable amount of sugar to yield sufficient alcohol to preserve the resulting beverage, nor have other fruits the requisite acids, esters and tannins to make natural, stable wine on a consistent basis.
However, if a winemaker is to make white wine, he or she will quickly press the must after crushing in order to separate the juice from the skins, seeds, and solids.
Essentially, white wine is allowed very little skin contact, while red wine is left in contact with its skins to garner color, flavor, and additional tannins during fermentation, which of course is the next step.
