Actually it is sweet, not always white (tienturier grapes have red juice). Juice starts out sweet after pressing whether de-stemmed or fermented whole cluster then pressed. It is fermented to dry or off dry. Without sugar there would be nothing for the yeast to react with to produce the alcohol.

Now, if you are talking dessert sweet, that's a different storya s there is so much sugar involved that it cannot all be fermented.

Exactly right. Alicante Bouchet or Garnacha Tintorera is probably the best known, but there are other grapes with red flesh. And it's all sweet, at least when the grapes are ripe. Champagne and sparkling grapes are often picked under-ripe, but if allowed to ripen, they would be sweet too.

All wine is NOT dry white wine. Wine is only dry when fermented dry and that's a decision of the winemaker. I'd be more careful about posting general statements w/out checking my facts first.
