"Hermione was the only one who had managed to turn vinegar into wine; her glass flask was full of deep crimson liquid."
—Description[src]

This charm (incantation unknown) is used to turn vinegar into wine.

History

This spell was taught by Filius Flitwick, the Charms professor, to the sixth year students during the 1996–1997 school year. If cast incorrectly, said vinegar may turn into ice or explode, as Harry Potter and Ron Weasley did, respectively, and was assigned extra practise as homework.

Practitioners

Behind the scenes

  • At first sight, this spell seems to change one thing into another, rather than adding properties to it, technically making it a transfiguration spell, despite being taught in Charms class. However, when one considers that vinegar is produced through the oxidation of ethanol it is entirely possible that what this charm does is revert that naturally occurring mechanism and not transform one thing to another, stricto sensu — effectively making it a Charm spell.
