In 1880, therefore, came in France to the idea of wine raisins to create. There was also a very successful book in several editions about the "art" of production. Milled raisins were mixed with water heated to 30 ° C in the ratio 1: 3 and then allowed to ferment for 14 days. The result was mixed with plain wine. The maximum production in 1890 was about one ninth of the total French wine quantity. See also below Dessert wine,
