White Wine

White wine is fermented without the grape skins, giving it a lighter color and more refreshing taste. White wine is often paired with white meats and served chilled. The most expensive bottle of white wine was a 1907 Charles Heidsieck champagne sold for $275,000.

What can you use instead of white wine vinegar?

For one teaspoon of vinegar use 1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice OR 2 teaspoons white wine
The best answer will depend upon the recipe you are making. Basically, any other vinegar can be substituted for the acidity, though white wine vinegar is slightly less acidic than white vinegar. If color matters, you will want to choose a light color vinegar, and avoid balsamic or red wine vinegar. In many recipes, red may be substituted for white and vice versa, with a similar flavor achieved. If the tangy flavor of the white wine vinegar is what is needed in the final product, you may want to try white vinegar with a touch of lemon juice. In others, the milder, sweeter taste of wine vinegar is desired and you may want to add a bit of sugar to white vinegar to substitute it.

Can grappa be used instead of white wine for cooking?

No. Grappa is a distilled spirit like brandy or bourbon. It's too strong in alcohol and in flavour to substitute for white wine. It can be used where dishes require brandy say for flaming off the juices from a cooked steak. White vermouth though stronger than wine in alcohol can sometimes be a substitute for white wine particularly if you want to add a herby mediterranean taste.

Are the health benefits to drinking white wine the same as red?

No...just red.It's pretty well established that red wine (not white) is a particularly rich source of antioxidants flavonoid phenolics; many studies to uncover a cause for red wine's effects have focused on its phenolic constituents, specifically resveratrol and the flavonoids. Resveratrol, found in grape skins and seeds, increases HDL (the good kind) cholesterol and help prevent blood clotting. A study published by the Journal of Carcinogenesis reported that lab rat fed Resveratrol developed prostate tumors at a much lower rate than mice fed on a normal diet. Flavonoids, also found in dark chocolate and other foods, exhibit antioxidant properties helping prevent blood clots and plaques formation in arteries.

Red wine versus white wine - is there a difference in health benefit?

by Dr Philp Norrie MBBS, MSc, MSocSc(Hons) Ever since Serge Reynaud's 'French Paradox' paper was published in The Lancetin 1991 wine consumers have had the mind set that only red wine is good for them. This article will show that it does not matter whether the wine is white or red as long as it is consumed in moderation and on a regular daily basis; then you will gain significant health benefits.

It has been well documented that consuming alcohol in moderation can reduce mortality from all causes by 30-50% (1) due, mainly, to reducing our society's biggest killer, cardiovascular disease by up to 50% (2) and cancer by up to 24% (3). It is also good for relieving society's other big disease group - stress related illness. Vascular disease occurs when bad cholesterol (LDL) is deposited in artery walls and swells up, eventually rupturing, causing a clot to form which blocks off the artery, and thus denying the tissue supplied by that artery of blood, hence it dies.

Alcohol, consumed in moderation reduces the bad cholesterol and raises the good cholesterol (HDL) level, plus acts as an anti-coagulant (blood clotting preventative). Good cholesterol clears away bad cholesterol from atheromatous plaques in artery walls and takes it back to the liver for re-metabolism.

Wine, in addition, contain substances called antioxidants which inhibit bad cholesterol from being incorporated in the artery wall. The antioxidants also reduce the damage caused by the body's free radicals (toxic waste products) which help cause degenerative diseases in the body such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and aging.The benchmark antioxidants are vitamins E and C, but wine in particular contains the strongest antioxidants in nature called resveratrol, quercitin and epicatechin which are five times stronger than vitamin E. Frankel (5) has shown that no matter how much vitamin E you take, its antioxidant activity plateaus at 20%, whereas wines' antioxidants will plateau at 100% after a couple of glasses. It should also be noted here that the fermentation process of converting grapes into wine enhances the antioxidant level many times over, plus produces alcohol, which helps the absorption of antioxidants. This explains why wine is far superior for your health than taking concentrates grape extract which has been advocated by some misguided people.

Returning to the 'French Paradox'. Reynaud observed that the French, despite eating a vascular disease-predisposing cholesterol rich diet, have significantly less coronary heart disease than other similarly indulgent countries. The reason for this, according to Reynaud is due largely to France's high consumption of wine. Professor Reynaud advocates red wine especially, but in fact his paper mentioned alcohol and wine, and did not specify red or white wine.

Dr. Frankel's research has shown that red wine contains more antioxidants than white wine, with the amount varying according to the grape variety, region, vintage climate (summer rainfall increases resveratrol production in grape skins as it protects against fungal infection), soil, storage in oak (oaked wines have more antioxidants than unoaked wines) and filtration techniques. Professor Skurray from The University of Western Sydney (5) has also shown that fining agents effect resveratrol levels. Polycar removed 92% of resveratrol, casein, egg white and alginate also 'stripped' some resveratrol, whereas gelatine removed relatively little.

The relevance of this to the average wine drinker is illustrated when one looks at studies which compare red wine and white wine consumption and mortality in practice, rather than in the laboratory.

There have been several studies which show that either are as beneficial. In 1995, Vinson and Hontz from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Scranton published a paper titled 'Phenol Antioxidant Index:comparative antioxidant effectiveness of red and white wines' (7) What this study showed was that even though red wines had a higher phenol content than white wines "The white wines had a significantly lower 1C50" (the concentration for 50% inhibition of low density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol) and thus were better antioxidants than contained in red wines. The take home message here is that it does not matter what the total antioxidant or phenol level is, but how effective the antioxidants are at doing their job -in this case inhibiting bad cholesterol.

Dr. Jung et al at the University of Mainz published a research paper in 1999 entitled 'Moderate red and white wine consumption and the risk of cardiovascular disease' (7). The paper's summary stated 'white and red wine improved the antioxidant capacity in the blood. The sum of the changes in cardiovascular protective blood values, the 'protective wine score' which includes all parameters, showed a clear improvement in both wine groups. The scores for moderate wine consumption were higher than for water, and white wine scored higher than red wine. Systolic blood pressure reduced significantly in the white wine group and the distolic blood pressure reduced in both wine groups'. This study shows that the effects of both red and white wines are comparable and in some parameters white wine delivered even better results than red wine.

Across the Atlantic in the US, The Jordan Heart Research Foundation found that free radicals were reduced by 15% in red wine drinkers and 34% by white wine drinkers, while red wine drinkers experienced a reduction in the blood's clotting ability of 10% and white wine drinkers 20%.

So why are the antioxidant molecules in white wine apparently more effective than those found in red wines even though they are present in greater numbers in red wines? The answer lies in the research of Dr. Troup, a physicist at Monash University in Melbourne. Dr. Troup used an electron spin resonance spectroscope to examine the actual size of the various antioxidant molecules in wine and showed that those in white wine are smaller and thus more effective because they can be more easily absorbed. A biochemical analogy would be to compare the smaller more effective immunoglobin IgG molecule which gets to all the bodies tissues to provide antibody coverage, whereas the larger immunoglobin IgM is restricted to the vascular system for its area of operation. In a letter to the Editor of the International Journal of Food Science and Technology titled 'Free Radical scavenging abilities of beverages' Troup et al pointed out that 'if the health promoting properties of wines are related to their superoxide-scavenging abilities, then white wine is at least as effective as red'.

Thus it can be seen that it does not matter which colour wine one drinks as each contain alcohol and enough antioxidants and once you get up to 100% antioxidant activity in your body tissue, anything extra is redundant anyway. Finally it should be emphasised that antioxidants such as resveratrol are not exclusive to wine but are found in dark ales, stout and cask aged whiskey too.

What does matter is that we are not side tracked from the important issue that drinking moderately and responsibly lengthens and enhances life, by which or what alcoholic beverage is better for you. Remember that all alcohol offers protective effect from coronary heart disease and total mortality.

What makes red wine red and white wine white?

Normally Red wine is made with red grapes, and White wine with white (greenish) grapes. Red wine get its color from the red skin being in the mix that get squeezed (with seeds and all), and left weeks fermenting. White wine is fermented without the skin and seeds (these are filtered out before starting the fermentation process). It is, though, possible to make white wine out of red grapes by removing the red skin prior to fermenting. This type of wine is called 'blanc de noirs' (white from black).

How long does white wine last unopened?

Generally speaking, white wines do not age well in comparison to their red counterparts. If it has been 2 years or more, chances are likely it's time to introduce it to the dumpster.

If the wine was kept chilled in the refrigerator, it may last 3 years. The warmer wine is (particularly white wine), the shorter the shelf life.

As an end note, as you have not stated the exact wine you are referring to, I would like to let you know that a dry white vermouth will last virtually eons. It has added alcohol, and is great to keep on hand for cooking purposes, as it does not go bad, and does not need to be chilled. It isn't, however, the best wine for drinking...I would use it for cooking purposes only.

What is the sugar content of white wine?

denerara sugar is used to make white wine

Theoretically there should be enough natural sugar in the fruit, so that it isn't necessary to add sugar during wine making. White wine can have a range of sugar levels and it all depends on the winemaker. Some can be dry (ie 0-2g per litre of sugar) right up to 'many' grams per litre for some desert wines.
the sugar content is the not fermented suger ... looking at the alc percentage would guide you some,,, a normal dry white wine would contain about 12-13 % a sweet wine would typically contain 7-8 % medium dry 9-10 % Half of the suger that is fermented will result in Etanol and half Carbon Dioxid

the suger in a 70cl bottle started with around 150-160 gram suger every percentage below let say 12 % represent about 12-14 gram of suger a medium sweet white wine therefor contain aprox 30-50 gram suger regardless how dry or sweet the wine is .. you will suffer from aprox 600 KCal energy

if wine is sweet more carb and no good from GI perspective.

if dry less carb same calories but better from GI perspective... Peter the Viking

Can you use white wine instead of red wine in a beef recipe?

Yes you can. Red wine has a more robust flavor to match the beef's flavor, but I've used white wine in a pinch and it turned out great.

As a substitute also try cran-berry juice, about a cup for a pot of beef stew!

I've also used a cup of white wine and a shot of whiskey with beef, it pairs well.

Good luck, and don't be afraid to experiment with your cooking.

Is white vinegar the same as white wine vinegar?

No, White vinegar is plain Acetic acid in water, but either as a simple chemical mix (usually very cheap or cleaning grade vinegar) or through fermentation of distilled alcohol (akin to Vodka). White wine vinegar is made from the fermentation of real White wine. As such White vinegar has a simple acidic taste, whilst White Wine vinegar retains much of its original White wine taste, with its alcohol replaced by the Acetic acid of vinegar.
