Fact: 
Red wines are red because fermentation extracts color from the grape skins. White wines are not fermented with the skins present.

Fun Fact: 
 In Vietnam, it’s possible to order a cobra blood wine from restaurant menus. The waiter will take a live cobra, kill it on the spot, drain the blood into a shot glass of rice wine, and top it off with the cobra’s still beating heart for you to gulp down.
