Orange wine is a wine made with white grapes, but in the manner of a red wine. Specifically, this consists of fermenting white grapes without first pressing them. The skins of white grapes contain tannins, just as black grapes do, and when macerated they give us tannic, structured wines with a lovely orange colour! This method of producing wine is as old as antiquity, and is a tradition that began in the Caucasus, in Georgia.
