Wine is a health drink resulting from complete or partial fermentation of grapes, either exclusively by natural micro-flora of grapes or the added wine yeast culture (Joshi and Attari, 1990). Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of fruit juice (grapes, apple, etc). The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrient. Although other fruits such as apples and berriers can also be fermented, the resultant wines are normally named after the fruit from which they are produced. Wine is produced by fermenting crushed fruits using various type of yeast which consume the sugars found in the fruits and convert them into alcohol. Various varieties of fruits and strains of yeasts are used depending on the type of wine produced.



The latest evidence suggests that wine was being made during the Neolithic period (approximately 6000 B.C.) in the Near East. Many lines of evidence indicate that wine making and grape cultivation began in the Transcaucasian region encompassing the northern portion of Turkey, Iran and Iraq, the southern region of Armenmia and Azerbaijan. This zone corresponds to the closest overlap of natural distribution of the wild Vitis vinifera (spp.silvatica) with the Northern spread of agriculture out of its Near Eastern centre of origin.

Figure 1.1: A 19th century reproduction of the Rigveda Viticulture was believed to have been introduced to India by Persian traders sometime in the 4th millennia BC. Historians believe that these early plantings were used mostly for table


grapes or grape juice rather than the production of an alcoholic beverage. During the Vedic period of the 2nd and 1st millennia, the Aryans tribes of the region were known for their indulgence of intoxicating drink and it seems probable that wine was a pleasant beverage. The religious text of the Vedas mentions at least one alcoholic drink that may have been wine related-sura which seems to have been a type of rice wine that was fermented with honey. The first known mentioning of grape- based wines was in the late 4th century B.C. writings of Chanakya who was the chief minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. In his writings, Chanakya condemns the use of alcohol while chronicling the emperor and his court's frequent indulgence of a style of grape wine known as Madhu. In the centuries that would follow, wine became the privileged drink of the Kshatriya or noble class while the lower caste typically drank alcohol made from wheat, barley and millet. Under the rule of Muslim Mughal Empire alcohol was prohibited in accordance to Islamic dietary laws. However, there are written reports about at least one Mughal ruler, Jahangir who was fond of brandy wine. In the 16th century, Portuguese colonists at Goa introduced port style wine and the production of fortified wines soon spread to other regions. Under British rule during the Victoria era, viticulture and wine making was strongly encouraged as a domestic source for the British colonists. Vineyards were planted extensively through the Baramati, Kasmir and Surat regions. In 1883, at the Calcutta International Exibition, Indian wines were showcased to a favorable reception. The Indian wine industry was reaching a peak by the time the phylloxera epidemic made its way to country and devastated its vineyards. It was a long road for the Indian wine industry to recover from the devastation at the end of the 19th century. Unfavorable religious and public opinion on alcohol developed and culminated in the 1950s when many of India's states prohibited alcohol. Vineyards were either uprooted or encouraged to convert to table grape and raisin production. Some areas, like Goa, continued to produce wine but the product was normally very sweet and highly alcoholic. The turning part of the modern Indian wine industry occurred in early 1980s with the founding of Chateu Indage in the state of Maharashtra With the assistance of French winemakers, Chateau Indage began to import Vits vinifera grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Pinot noir and Ugni blanc and started making still


and sparkling wines. Other wineries soon followed as the emergence of India's growing middle class fueled the growth and development of the Indian wine industry. However, Indian wine yards were totally destroyed by unknown reasons in the 1890.

Following are the major wine growing regions in the country:<1> Nasik Region (Maharashtra State): It is the biggest wine producing region in India. This region includes Pune, Nasik and Ahmed Nagar. It is above 800 meter sea level. Several top wineries are located in this area including Chateau Indage and Sula Wines. <2> Sangli Region (Maharashtra State): This region includes Solapur, Sangali, Satara and Latur. It is above 800 meter sea level. <3> Bangalore Region (Karnataka State): Nandi Hills located about around 45 kilometer north of Bangalore City. Grover Vineyards is located in Nandi Hills. It is above 800 meter sea level. <4> Himachal Region: It is located at Northern India. It is upcoming state for the wine production. Temperature varies from 20 degree C to 40 degree C. Unique climate of this region attracts the wine makers to produce delicate wine grapes.

The company has the capacity of producing over 3 million bottles annually. 5 .6%) and higher sugar content (atleast 24 Brix).For sweet desert wines. medium acidity (0.9%) and moderate sugar content (19 to 23 Brix) (Bammi. The way that the red wine gets its colour is by letting the skins soak in the juice until the red colour bleeds out. Central governments have announced number of financial incentives and administrative reforms.1. Everyone knows that almost all grapes have colourless juice. 1968). Soaking the skins give red wine its colour and also imparts a substance known as tannin. Thus cultivation of good quality of grapes is very much important.5 to 0.

Some common types of wine are:1. which contain alcohol less than 14% and little or no unfermented sugar and sweet dessert wines are those having 17 to 20% alcohol and some unfermented grape sugars.00 to 3. 1. Quality wines can only be prepared from quality grapes. Sula vineyards at Nasik are new vineyards in India for making wine. Several research workers in India have concentrated their efforts to produce quality wines with improved health benefits.Dry table wines require grapes of fairly low pH (3. Reportedly the world wine market is growing at 14% annually whereas the Indian market at more than 20%. TYPES OF WINES Various research workers specified different compositional requirements of grapes and must for different wines. Sangali is another region for wine production.65).

This stage is often termed as Euphoria where BAC is around 0. hippocampus of brain helps to shed off inhibitions. it can penetrate almost all cellular membranes resulting in absorption by all organs.03 to 0. This situation leads to Liver Cirrhosis. Although. the enzyme secreted by hepatic cells converts alcohol to acetaldehyde. person feels more relaxed and cheerful which is followed by more stumbling movements and animated speech. They become more confident. As liver performs vital role in filtration mechanism of body. iv) Metabolism and its effects Alcohol dehydrogenase. As mentioned earlier. previous studies have failed to establish direct connection between alcohol and its effect on cancer. While. shying off their inhibitions. This acetaldehyde further gets converted into acetic acid and then acetate by acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. increased alpha waves from brain makes person more cheerful. At initial stages. there is a strong indication to suggest that alcohol enhances the effects of other 26 . Rest 80% is then absorbed by small intestine from where it gets distributed throughout the human body. relaxed. the effects of alcohol on human body changes gradually over the time. Then it goes to stomach where only 20% of the total quantity is absorbed by it.12%. Acetate is a compound of fats which gets deposited locally. stimulation by alcohol to cortex. iii) Absorption and Distribution Mechanism When consumed. As alcohol enhances antidiuretic hormone secretion. more urine is formed which results in dehydration. Because of the chronic and continuous consumption of alcohol. This happens because of the increased metabolism in nigrostriatal pathway of brain which is associated with body movements. due to its high affinity towards water. v) Carcinogenic Effects Alcohol comes under Group1 carcinogens as classified by WHO.ii) Effects at Initial Stages When ingested. alcohol first irritates the mucous lining of mouth and then esophagus causing an anesthetic effect. malfunctioning of liver often leads to jaundice (Hepatitis). Alcohol travels through blood and come into the vicinity of cells of almost every organ.

the condition is known as Confusion. Dizziness continues.39%. the condition is known as Lethargy. esophagus more prone to cancer. When BAC crosses the mark of 0. the condition is known as Stupor. its withdrawal also develops symptoms like delirium tremens which has high percentage of mortality rate (35%). 5. It is characterized by unconsciousness when body reflexes are low. overly aggressive. Their reaction with polyamines can end up in forming mutagenic DNA.28%. When BAC count ranges from 0. if gets concentrated in high amounts then it can damage the DNA of cells. They are not certain of what they are doing. When BAC count ranges from 0.carcinogenic chemicals like tobacco. It is characterized by aggravated emotional state where people try to be sentimental. When BAC count ranges from 0.35 to 0. body movements are severely affected and patients lose and regain consciousness intermittently. 4. While consumption of alcohol develops an array of diseases. The excessive consumption of ethanol also makes mouth. alcohol consumption can lead to fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. In this condition. the condition is known as Coma. pharynx. Alcoholism is a major public health problem.23%.50%. 3. their movements’ loose coordination and start losing their body balance. it results in failure of CNS (Central Nervous System) ultimately resulting in Death. It is also characterized by blurred vision. Nausea is the common symptom of this phase.09 to 0. Acetaldehyde. When BAC count ranges from 0. larynx.25 to 0. They are generally classified as follows1. if not treated. breathing rate declines resulting in dropping of heart beat rate. people become sleepy.17 to 0. vi) General Effects on Human Body There are different effects of alcohol on human body subject to their concentrations in blood. During Pregnancy. 2. 27 . They have high risk of coma or even death. In this stage.5%. the byproduct of metabolism of alcohol.

Black grape is 28 .5trihydroxystilbene) and then preserves it in an airtight bottle. peanuts. 2004. 1995) Resveratrol is synthesized in the skin but not in the fleshy part of the berries of Vitis vinifera and Vitis labrusca grapes. worms and mice—has been dramatically lengthened by minute amounts of a red wine extract. fruit flies. Man’s pursuit of long life. Japanese knotweed was known to comprise in Resveratrol. Lead researcher David Sinclair. a unique antioxidant that red grapes produce in great amounts as a defence against fungi. and perhaps as a dietary supplement.. Though red wine had been known to have health benefits since long but in 1992. it was recommended that probably the secret of these benefits lies in increased Resveratrol content in red wine. whose skin consists of Resveratrol that serves as the protective shield against diseases. RESVERATROL Resveratrol is an antioxidant that is commonly found in many plants.2. resveratrol. otherwise it would vanish in days. edged closer to fruition with the recent announcement that a dietary component may increase the human lifespan to the point where it would be common to live 125 years. polygonum cuspidatum extracts and red wine extracts. This redcoloured youth potion can be obtained from a bottle of vino. says the lifespan of all life forms tested so far—yeast cells. extends the life of yeast cells by 70 per cent.. The process of winemaking utilises alcohol to extract resveratrol (or 3. the so-called fountain of youth. Recent research indicates that resveratrol. This substance is usually created in the outer layers of fruits and plants and defends us against diseases caused by pathogens along with other benefits. PhD.3. assistant professor of pathology at Harvard University Medical School. Food supplements often comprise in Resveratrol in pills that contain grape seed extract. Jeandet et al. found in red grapes. Data in the literature indicates that its quantity is very variable (Lamuela-Reventros et al.4. The skin of red wine is the most abundant source of resveratrol. Red wine. Muscadine grapes are utilized in making red wine. it was isolated from white hellebore roots by Takaoka. Originally. grapes and blueberries are some of its rich and popular sources. Later.

internucleosomal DNA fragmentation. 2003). 1999). the sirtuin gene upregulates the activity of an enzyme (histone deacetylase) that prolongs the time cells have in which to repair 29 . Resveratrol can reduce serum lipid levels and can prevent or inhibit cellular events associated with tumor initiation. K 2009).. V. Both cis. Resveratrol treatment resulted in a gradual decrease in the expression of anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 (Young-Joon et al. animals and probably humans (Heilbronn LK.and trans-isomers of resveratrol have been analyzed in skin. starting from must to skin separation and in wine after malolactic fermentation. thus may help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer (Joshi. trypan blue dye exclusion assay. (Bruno. 2. and cell cycle analysis showed that resveratrol has a dose-dependent antiproliferative and antiapoptotic action on DHL-4 cells. et al. The addition of polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP) significantly lowers the resveratrol content. researchers have recognised that severe restriction of calories can significantly broaden the lifespan of insects.17 mg/l. Resveratrol concentration increases during fermentation on the skins but the amount extracted depends on the variety and enological conditions. which can damage DNA and may lead to cancer onset. In this study we have indagated resveratrol anticancer action.. Ravussin E. it is being seen that resveratrol is able to neutralize free radicals. seeds and must of grape berries of Gama. and increased proportion of the sub diploid cell population. analyzing its effects on both cell cycle and growing of human lymphoma B (DHL-4) cells.. MECHANISM OF ACTION Since 1935.33 mg/l to 7. The mechanism behind calorie restriction appears to be a survival factor that is turned on when living organisms are exposed to harsh conditions.nature's best source of resveratrol. The growth inhibitory and antiproliferative properties of resveratrol appear to be attributable to its induction of apoptotic cell death as determined by morphological and ultrastructural changes. When a living organism is deprived of calories. These results confirm resveratrol's potential therapeutic role on tumors. 2003).3. Resveratrol reduces viability and DNA synthesis capability of cultured human promyelocytic leukemia (HL-60) cells. promotion and progression. In recent studies.P. MTT colorimetric test.1. Trans-resveratrol concentration in red wines ranges from 1.

The enzymatic activity also ‘silences’ the genes responsible for protein production (ribosomal DNA). In human terms. What Sinclair discovered was the dietary switch to turn on this mechanism. Slowing down the rate at which proteins are produced slows the rate of ageing itself. did indeed turn on the survival switch and extend the life of yeast cells by 70 per cent. Surprisingly. Therefore. the extract obtained from red wine. et al. What grapes use to turn on this survival mechanism. Cells have machinery to increase enzyme activity on their own. can be transferred to humans in a glass of wine. their strands of DNA. The enzyme itself cannot be bottled because to work. Aged cells typically produce hundreds of thousands of extra copies of ribosomal DNA. From a library of thousands of molecules.their damaged genetic material. resveratrol inhibits the over-production of proteins within cells that leads to accelerated ageing. the calorie restriction mimic. that would be equivalent to 30 to 50 years of added life! Resveratrol was superior to the 16 other molecules tested (Howitz KT. The uniqueness of resveratrol may be partly explained by the fact it is utilised by cells and orally absorbed by humans better than other antioxidants found in grapes (Soleas GJ. 2002). Bitterman KJ et al. 2003). Resveratrol. 17 activated the human survival/longevity gene. it has to be delivered to cells at the right place and time. A family of ironcontrolling antioxidant molecules was screened for its ability to increase the activity of the enzyme.. SUPPLEMENTS FALL SHORT Dietary supplements providing resveratrol from red wine or knotweed are available. tests conducted at Harvard University by Sinclair have failed to find any significant biological activity in resveratrol dietary supplements in tablets.2. 2. responsible for activating the same enzyme. Humans have a similar gene.3. The accumulation of these proteins in living cells has been likened to an ageing clock. 2003). cross-species transfer process scientists now call xenohormesis (Hall SS. SIRT1. Sinclair began to research the dynamics of this survival mechanism.. capsules or as 30 .

However. fills gelatin capsules in nitrogen rather than an oxygen environment and seals dietary supplements ingredients in an airtight pill. Mega doses of resveratrol do not produce greater longevity and in fact may work in an opposite manner and become problematic to genes. a relatively new technology called Licaps. resveratrol appears to work in wine. Leroy Creasy. showcasing the need for special measures that should be undertaken in the manufacture of resveratrol supplements.3. Encapsulation fails to duplicate the airtight environment found in a wine bottle. Licaps technology is being utilised to produce the first stabilised red wine extract. 2002). (Kimura Y. produced under nitrogen and preserved in part by refrigeration. which has demonstrated biological activity. and also under laboratory conditions as a pure 100 per cent molecule. Creasy claims it would take thousands of capsules of resveratrol to provide the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in a glass of red pinot noir wine (Leroy Creasy 2003). reported that resveratrol supplements failed to exhibit much biological activity—evidenced by the ability to activate an enzyme that promotes DNA repair and lengthen the life of yeast cells—compared to wine. developed by Capsugel specifically for liquid ingredients. would be sufficient for humans to achieve enzyme activity levels equivalent to those achieved in the laboratory.. a professor of plant science at Cornell University in Ithaca. REQUIRED AMOUNTS A small amount of resveratrol was found to increase the survival of yeast cells by threefold even when the cells were exposed to ionizing radiation (Zoberi I et al. PhD. which provide about 3mg resveratrol.liquid herbal extracts (David Sinclair 2003). much higher amounts of resveratrol have been used successfully in animal tests for treating cancer. Three five-ounce glasses of red wine per day. but apparently his report went unnoticed by manufacturers. Although studies are lacking that show resveratrol in pills work. A nitrogen bubble inside the capsule also retards any spoilage. However. 2. Okuda 2001) 31 . New York.3. which preserves the resveratrol.

This would also slow the ageing process if you start taking in small quantities in your middle age. the principle micronutrient (vitamin) antioxidants are vitamin E. selenium. ANTIOXIDANTS Antioxidants are a type of complex compounds found in our diet that act as a protective shield for our body against certain disastrous enemies (diseases) such as arterial and cardiac diseases.4. Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that scavenge free radicals. beta-carotene. Last but not least. BENEFITS OF RESVERATROL Years of researches have shown several benefits of this natural compound: • It helps you to reverse diseases that come handy as you grow old. • 2. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients so they must be supplied in the diet. 32 .2.4. and vitamin C. • • • Resveratrol contain in one red wine glass can suppress carcinogenesis that otherwise cause breast cancer. is sometimes included in this category. antioxidant and inflammation damper. Additionally. This can be done with regular intake of Resveratrol while you are still quite young.3. cataracts and also premature ageing along with several chronic diseases Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. such as diabetes. a trace metal that is required for proper function of one of the body's antioxidant enzyme systems. it ensures sound cardiovascular system. arthritis. • It increases your life span as high resveratrol levels counteract with cell death and damage in brain and heart. It is an effective artery protector. Low Resveratrol doses provide the same effect as that of a calorie-reduced diet. cancer and heart diseases.

New data from ongoing studies will be available in the next few years and will shed more light on this constantly evolving area. Antioxidants are also thought to have a role in slowing the aging process and preventing heart disease and strokes. This has lead to the theory that these diets contain substances. It is not possible to directly measure free radicals in the body. possibly antioxidants. Thus far. This is an important finding because it shows how 33 . If the generation of free radicals exceeds the antioxidant defenses then one would expect to see more of these by-products. male smoker who did not supplement. These measurements have been performed in athletes under a variety of conditions.1.Antioxidant help in many ways:Epidemiologic observations show lower cancer rates in people whose diets are rich in fruits and vegetables. is to eat 5 servings of fruit or vegetables per day. scientists have approached this question by measuring the byproducts that result from free radical reactions. which protect against the development of cancer. but the data is still inconclusive. Therefore from a public health perspective it is premature to make recommendations regarding antioxidant supplements and disease prevention. Regular physical exercise enhances the antioxidant defense system and protects against exercise induced free radical damage. EXERCISE AND OXIDATIVE DAMAGE Endurance exercise can increase oxygen utilization from 10 to 20 times over the resting state. In fact one study demonstrated an increased risk of lung cancer in male smokers who took antioxidants vs. none of the large. prompting concern about enhanced damage to muscles and other tissues. 2. Several interesting concepts have emerged from these types of experimental studies. which comes from several authorities in cancer prevention. Whether this effect was from the antioxidants is unknown but it does raise the issue that antioxidants may be harmful under certain conditions. There is currently intense scientific investigation into this topic. Perhaps the best advice. This greatly increases the generation of free radicals.4. well designed studies have shown that dietary supplementation with extra antioxidants reduces the risk of developing cancer.

2. A placebo controlled study done on mountaineers demonstrated less free radical damage and decline in anaerobic threshold in those athletes supplemented with vitamin E. The experimental studies are often conflicting and conclusions are difficult to reach. It is hypothesized that vitamin E is also involved in the recovery process following exercise. 2. These changes occur slowly over time and appear to parallel other adaptations to exercise. the "weekend warrior" who is predominantly sedentary during the week but engages in vigorous bouts of exercise during the weekend may be doing more harm than good. 34 . Thus. Nevertheless. the amount of vitamin E needed to produce these effects is unknown.4. this finding suggests that supplementation with vitamin E might be beneficial in those triathletes who are adapting to higher elevations. including degree of conditioning of the athlete. Antioxidant supplements prevent exercise induced damage or enhance recovery from exercise:Although it is well known that vitamin deficiencies can create difficulties in training and recovery. PERFORMANCE In general. the role of antioxidant supplementation in a well nourished athlete is controversial. The one exception to this is vitamin E which has been shown to be useful in athletes exercising at high altitudes. but some may require supplementation. intensity of exercise. antioxidant supplements have not been shown to be useful as performance enhancers. intense exercise in untrained individuals overwhelms defenses resulting in increased free radical damage. most of the data suggest that increased intake of vitamin E is protective against exercise induced oxidative damage. Currently. The diet may supply enough vitamin E in most athletes. and diet. On the other hand. Although difficult to generalize.smart the body is about adapting to the demands of exercise. To this end there are many factors which may determine whether exercise induced free radical damage occurs. There is no firm data to support the use of increased amounts of the other antioxidants.

Taking chemicals without a complete understanding of all of their effects may disrupt this balance. harmful.3. Antioxidants supplements were once thought to be harmless but increasingly we are becoming aware of interactions and potential toxicity. thus. no one knows if supplements should be taken and. very little is known about the long term consequences of mega doses of antioxidants. in the normal concentrations found in the body. Also. but at higher concentrations they are pro-oxidants and. AMOUNT REQUIRED BY BODY Although there is little doubt that antioxidants are a necessary component for good health. 35 . if so. It is interesting to note that. how much. vitamin C and beta-carotene are antioxidants.2.4. The body's finely tuned mechanisms are carefully balanced to withstand a variety of insults.

Hence we have estimated antioxidant abilities of Indian wine varieties. serum triglycerides. with a gradual increase in the number of patients with acute myocardial infarction (Krishnaswami. The pH of Wine sample is carried out and from the study it is being clear that white wine is more acidic in comparison of red and port wine. Their intake was significantly and inversely associated with mortality from CHD and also showed an inversely associated with mortality from CHD and also showed an inverse correlation with incidence of myocardial infarction (Hertog. Natural product especially derived from dietary components such as fruits and vegetables yield rich divided in terms of potential benefits in controlling diseases. low levels of HDL cholesterol etc. Biochemical test of wine is successfully carried out by using different sample of red.1998). white. Various antioxidants may prevent and/or improve different diseased states. we know that port wine consist of more alcohol content in comparison of white and red wine.4 to 3. fruits and beverages such as tea and wine. we have used different methods such as radical scavenging by using DPPH and inhibition of lipid peroxidation by measuring TBARS in rat liver mitochondria. Reducing sugar was found more in comparison of red and white wine. and port wine. Wine sample were collected from different wineries shop. According to this result port wine is much better after that red wine followed by white wine.It is being reported that there is increase in prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) in India and other developing countries. M.65 and average reading of port wine is 3. 1998). There is slight difference between red and port wine. D. For measuring antioxidant activity. After doing alcohol estimation.. Its acidity lies below 3.05 where as average reading of red wine is 3. (Bhatnagar. Polyphenolic antioxidants such as flavonoids occur naturally in vegetables.G. It has been shown that people of Indo-origin may be more prone to CHD due to metabolic syndrome comprising of resistance to insulinmediated glucose uptake.7.L et al. S.. Reducing sugar for wine is being carried out taking maltose as standard. Red wine consists of less alcohol in comparison of other wines. According to the result red wine is good for drinking. The model of scavenging the stable DPPH radical is a widely used method to 72 . Consumption of wine also can help. 1993).

DPPH activity was found maximum in red wine. followed by port and white wine for health and also for antioxidant activity. The high total phenol and flavonoid contents of wine may lead to its good DPPH-scavenging activity.1 and 1. Inhibitory effects of the six samples of wine were carried against lipid peroxidation induced by ascorbate-Fe2+ in rat liver mitochondria. DPPH is a stable nitrogen-centered free radical..or electron..07 to 0. The Comparative studies were made considering tannic acid as standard. vanillin. It was found that the radical – scavenging activity of the extracts increased with increasing concentration. The content of phenolic compounds was determined by the Folin-Ciocalteu for the different wine samples (V.5 to 5. All the 12 varieties of wines were analyzed for total phenol and total flavonoid contents and some select varieties by HPLC to identify different phenolics and flavonoids such as tannic acid. In this we found that white wine show greater percent of protein protection followed by red and port wine.6 to 3. Substances which are able to perform this reaction can be considered as antioxidants and therefore radical scavengers (Brand-Williams et al. From all the above data it is clear that red wine is better.07. than in red wine and very less in white wine (range between-6.donation. 1995). The result showed that the increase of phenolic content is higher in port wine. It was found that port wine has greater amount of tannic acid in comparison of red and white wine. the colour of which changes from violet to yellow upon reduction by either the process of hydrogen. the red wines had significantly higher amounts of total phenolic content. cathachol. As expected.evaluate the free radical scavenging ability of various sample (Lee et al. 6.74 respectively).. 73 . caffic and ferulic acid. 2003).Katalinic et al. 2003).

the pigments molecules. These varieties of wine. Qualitatively there is little difference between port. may confer health benefits. our studies show that among the different varieties of wines examined red wine have the most potent antioxidant activities and after that port wine followed by white wine. In many cases it is being observed that red wine and port wine are similar.In conclusion. "Nothing more excellent or valuable than wine was ever granted by the Gods to man. This prolonged contact during fermentation produces significant levels of resveratrol in the finished red wine. Red wine has a high concentration of resveratrol because the skins and seeds ferment in the grapes' juices during the red wine-making process. Their antioxidant activities. especially in population prone to CVD. red and white wine. if consumed in adequate amounts. assayed at different levels correlate with their chemical composition in terms of total phenolics and flavonoids. Wines also help from cancer and many heart disease when it is taken in moderate amount. 74 ." Those of us who have come to enjoy the variety and tastes that wine have to offer can now look to red wines for greater health benefits. large amounts of catechins and phenolic content. The difference between red and white wines is that red wines contain anthocyanins. Plato may have been wiser than he knew when he said.
