At National Orange Wine Day, it’s time to buy a bottle of a delicious drink, invite friends and celebrate the holiday! In fact, wine is not made from oranges – the name was coined solely because of the color. The main raw material here is white grapes fermented with their skins. But this does not affect its taste in any way.
National Day founded by The Real House Wine in 2018. Its goal is to draw the attention of the population to a little-known variety that is in no way inferior to the rest. Its history goes back thousands of years. Historians believe that orange wine was produced in Georgia in 6000 BC. Then, for unclear reasons, the variety was no longer produced. It was revived only 20 decades ago, creating a real boom around itself!
In 2004, the wine gets its name. It was invented by wine importer David A. Harvey. Consumers liked the name, despite the fact that the drink does not contain oranges. It is amazing that many people learn this directly when studying the composition!
Curiously, orange wine:
- in Georgia it is called white or, in extreme cases, amber;
- does not contain any dyes – only the skin;
- has a different color intensity: it depends on the technique of working with the must, the duration of maceration, variety;
- differs in aromas: it is mainly a floral and fruit palette, less often tea, oriental spices, field herbs.
