Definizione

The practical art of transforming grapes into wine. 1

Nota

In its widest sense it is synonymous with wine-making, but strictly encompasses only those processes which take place in the winery up to the point at which élevage of the new wine begins. 2

Contesto

This distinction has its origins in history, when the peasants of the region were largely responsible for growing the grapes, whilst the various monastic orders were more concerned with the vinification and marketing of the wine. 3

Etimologia

vine = c.1300, from O.Fr. vigne, from L. vinea "vine, vineyard," from vinum "wine," from PIE *win-o-, from an Italic noun related to words for "wine" in Gk., Armenian, Hittite, and non-I.E. Georgian and West Semitic (cf. Heb. yayin, Ethiopian wayn); probably ult. from a lost Mediterranean language word *w(o)in- "wine."

-fication = suffix meaning "a making or causing," from L. -ficationem (nom. -ficatio), ultimately from facere "to make, do". 6
