Can White wine be made from red grapes?

Yes. The color of wine comes entirely from the grape skins.

By removing the skins immediately after picking, no color is imparted to the wine, and it will be white. In the Champagne region of France, a large percentage of the grapes grown are red, yet most of the resulting wine is white.

California’s white Zinfandel is made from red Zinfandel grapes.
