Full Answer

The sugar in red wine is actually residual sugar, which comes from the fermentation process of the ripe grapes and their natural sugars. Because dry wine contains less sugar, it tastes less sweet. Red wine is generally sweeter than white wine, as red grapes contain more sugar than white grapes.
