Orange Wines

Orange wine is a type of wine made from white grapes. However, unlike traditional white wine, orange wine is produced by leaving the grape skins in contact with the juice for an extended period during fermentation. This method gives the wine an orange, amber, or sometimes pinkish color, hence the name "orange wine."

Fermenting with the skins imparts different aromas, flavors, and textures to orange wine compared to conventional white wines. Generally, orange wines tend to be more complex, with notes of dried fruits, tea, spices, and sometimes a slight astringency due to the presence of tannins extracted from the skins.

This winemaking technique, often associated with more natural production methods, has ancient roots, particularly in Georgia, where the use of clay vessels called "qvevris" is common for fermenting and aging orange wines. This style of wine is gaining popularity in the contemporary wine world due to its unique character and connection to ancient winemaking methods.
