The juice of red grapes is clear*. To make white wine from red grapes, they gently squeeze the grapes to extract the clear juice, throw away the skins, and ferment the juice.

To make red wine they ferment the juice together with the skins and the red colour comes from the skins.

To make pink wine they leave the skins with the juice for a few hours (depending on how pink they want it) then drain the juice off the skins and discard the skins.

Perhaps the most famous white wine made from red grapes is Champagne, which is made from the red Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunieur plus the white Chardonnay in various blends, but Champagnes labelled 'Blanc de Noir' (white of black) is made from only the red grapes.

Another popular white wine - Pinot Grigio - has grapes that are deep pink when ripe.

To sum up, you can make white wine from both white and red grapes, but you can only make red wine from red grapes.

*there are a very few rare red grapes that have red juice, such as Alicante Bouschet.

Other Answers:
most wines are made from the same color grapes but different variteies, the way red wines get their color is dependant on the amount of time the skins are in the wine. except white zins. pink wines have added color added
yeah..removing the skin
Colour comes from the skin of the wine. If you remove the skin from red wine you can have white wine
