Orange Wine

No Comments

You know what style of vino is really popular right now? It’s “orange wine”. It’s simply white wine made from white gapes that have been macerated on their skins before fermentation. White wine is usually made without skin contact. This extended maceration on the skins gives the finished wine a golden pink to deep amber and burnt sienna colour. Like rosé, it’s very visually appealing. Although this style appears new the concept is ancient and has been around for some 8,000 years. It came to the foreground in the late nineteen-eighties when an Italian winemaker visiting Georgia resurrected the style. Now it’s hot, hot, hot and countless restaurants and bars around the world are having fun with it.
