Find out more about Orange Wine
How is an Orange Wine made?
Orange wine is a white wine that follows the same winemaking process as red wine and rosé wine from bleeding. With the difference that the fermentation of naturally white grape juice takes place with the skin of white grapes and not with the skin of black grapes. Maceration can last from a few days to a few months. As the skin of white grapes contains tannins but not a lot of pigments, the result is a golden, tiled wine which tends towards an orange color. This is why these wines took the name of orange wine, it is more seller than "Blanc de Maceration" which should technically be the name. It is also very surprising to discover a tannic white wine, which previously would have been an oxymoron is now a reality. The orange wine is fresh while presenting a fairly low acidity.
What is the origin of Orange Wine?
It seems that the first traces of the manufacture of orange wine date from 4500 years before our era come to us from the Caucasus and more particularly from present-day Georgia.
