Many people don't realize that white wines (and apparently verjuice) can often be made with red grapes; and that red wines are colored to some extent, at least, with the skins of the grapes, which, if the must is drained off the skins quickly enough, changes the character of the product.

Is red wine grape verjuice red or green/yellow? I mean, the "ver" in "verjuice" does denote green, after all...

Adamantius (still haven't found Andre Simon, will look for it again later)
