To test the Acohol in wine,
The vinometer's reservoir or funnel is filled with a small amount of wine being tested until some wine exits out at the other end , It is then turned around and placed on a flat surface, filling resevoir side down, and allowed to self drain.
The alcohol concentration level is read of the vinometer's scale, on the capillary, at the top of the liquid being measured, in %v/v alcohol.

The vinometer is calculated on the basis of pure alcohol and water solutions, whereas wine is not a pure water/alcohol solution and the accuracy of a vinometer can not be relied upon.
Sugar interferes with the interfacial effects that a vinometer's action relies on and hence the method can only be applied to dry wines.
Similarly other components in wine can also interfere with accurate measurements.

Works best on dry white wines, reds tend to be too sticky and causes inaccurte readings
