What is grape must and the differences with wine?

¡Good morning to you all! Today, from Venerable Capital, specialists in the distribution and export of drinks, we bring you an entry about a non-alcoholic drink. In this case we will talk about what is popularly known as grape must, or non-alcoholic wine.
It is very common to read enophiles to talk continuously about the quality and taste of wines. However, virtually no mention is made of the other products that are extracted from the manufacturing process. Grape must is what you might know as grape juice.

How do you get the grape must?

The process of obtaining it, is carried out in the early stages of wine production. The process to obtain it is known as squeezing. In this process, the grape undergoes a rupture by pressure. The pressure of this process is a very important element, since the breakage of other plant elements should not occur.
From this process, a viscous paste is formed by pressed pulp, broken skin. This paste is transferred by pressure pumps to the press assembly.

Differences between wine and grape must
