Wine is an alcoholic beverage, typically made of fermented grape juice. The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients. Wine is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast. It is served often in both the wizarding and Muggle worlds, notably when Harry Potter's emotions caused Marjorie Dursley's wineglass to shatter when the latter was insulting his mother. Sherry is a type of wine.
