Wine is made by fermenting either fresh grapes or fresh grape must and vinification or wine-making is the process whereby grapes are converted into wine. In general terms, wine-making consists of the following stages:

- Crushing or pressing
- Must clarification, if necessary
- Barreling and Maceration for red wine production (alcoholic fermentation)
- Free-running or Juice Separation
- Malolactic Fermentation for red wines and very particular white wines
- Clarification, Filtering, Stabilization
- Ageing
- Bottling
