The present study involves the production of wine by using different fruit substrates, especially beet root and betel leaves. Two sets of wine were prepared, one with betel leaf and other one without betel leaf. Different parameters like acidity, pH, sugar content and alcoholic content were checked in both sets of wine and compared with each other.
