I made red wine with grape’s skins and seeds because it is proved the richest concentrations of nutrients and antioxidants, including resveratrol, are in the grape skin and seeds. Grape flesh contains no more than 5 percent of the antioxidants found in the skin and seeds. (see below report). But the red wine made with them will be bitter. Well, just a little, you will be used to and become loving that favor after a few batches.
It took 58 days to make 1-gal (5 bottles) red wine at home. This video shows the equipment you need and steps to make grape red wine at home.

See following reports, grape’s skins and seeds shouldn’t be wasted in home made red concord wines. (normally, dedicate commercial red wines don’t include seeds or skins in fermentation)
Grape’s skins and seeds have been proved by scientists are good in many ways, especially to hearts. “Grapes, especially the Concord grape variety, contain phytonutrients, including phenols, polyphenols, resveratrol and carotenoids,” said Alissa Rumsey, a New York City-based registered dietitian, certified strength and conditioning specialist and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
“Grapes are also a good source of vitamin K, copper and many of the B vitamins,” said Rumsey, adding that they are also a good source of fiber and relatively low in calories.
