Following in step with the introductory episodes, Kara and Calla broach the subject of wine production by breaking it down into four styles: white, orange, rose and red. Each style of wine is produced with the same steps but with varying levels of skin contact: white with none and orange, rose, and red with varying levels of time spent on skin. The skin contact is the main difference between these styles and the main focus of the discussion with the typical meandering into other areas of wine production and history.
