We get into ruts, don’t we?

 

White wines with seafood, salads and chicken. Red wines with red meat and mushrooms. Rosé with summer, backyards and canapés.

 

Orange wines lift us out of our ruts. They break all of the rules. They shock our senses back to life.

 

Orange wines go with pickled foods as well as garlicky dishes, with sweet as easily as savory. They please with what’s rich, or spicy, or fruity, with tannin-loving proteins or acid-loving vegetables. They even go with dairy.

 

And the way they taste will blow your mind.

 

The world of fine wine has rediscovered the magic of Orange wine — a magic which began 6000 years ago in the Caucasus Mountain region of present-day Georgia.

 

Orange wine is a type of white wine made by fermenting the juice of wine grapes with the grapes’ skins and seeds in large vessels — which are usually cement or ceramic — for four days to over a year. (In Georgia, Orange wines are fermented underground in large vessels called Qvevri.) What emerges from these vessels are wines in various shades of orange — from wines with a light kiss of amber, to wines with translucent ruby hues.

 

If you’ve discovered Orange wines, then come along to taste the best examples of them from around the world. If you haven’t discovered Orange wines, then come along to have your mind blown.
