Collection: Orange Wine

Skin contact white wine with no or little filtration. 

from Wine Enthusiast: 

During maceration, the wines can become darker than the average white bottling. It’s why they’re often referred to as orange wine, though not all skin-contact wines are orange in color. The name can create confusion over whether the wines contain actual oranges, so many proponents prefer to call them “skin-contact wines.”

“Amber wine” is the preferred term for skin-contact wines from the Republic of Georgia, where the technique is said to have originated. The traditional method of winemaking used in the region is to let indigenous white grapes like Rkatsiteli and Tsolikouri ferment on their skins undisturbed in clay vessels called qvevri.
