Orange wine is a type of wine made from white wine grapes that are left to ferment with their skins for an extended period, giving the wine an orange or amber color. This process is also known as skin-contact or maceration.
Unlike white wine, which is made by pressing grapes and removing the skins, orange wine is made by allowing the juice to ferment with the skins, giving it more tannins, structure, and complexity. The skins also give the wine flavors of orange peel, spice, and dried fruits.
Orange wine is a type of natural wine, which means that it is made using minimal intervention, and without the addition of chemicals or artificial flavors. It is a relatively rare type of wine, but has gained popularity in recent years among wine enthusiasts who appreciate its unique flavors and production process.
