Red Wines

One of the first things they realized was that red Wine production required the grapes to be fermented in contact with their skins. This gives the Wine colour and body. In contrast, most white Wine production does not occur in contact with the grape skins. Whites are valued for their fresh fruit characteristics and skin contact would impart unwanted bitter tannins.
