Wine 101: Tannins

Tannins are chemical compounds found in the skin, seeds and stems of grapes. They give red wines their structure and ability to age. There are two sources of tannin: grapes and new oak. Join us as we explore the mysterious world of tannins guided by Daniel Duica, WSET Instructor!
