National Orange Wine Day

National Orange Wine Day, October 6, is a celebration of an ancient method of winemaking. This little-known style of wine shines thanks to its bold flavor and auburn color. Join the celebration as it continues to gain some esteem with vineyards, wine cellars, and lovers.


The art of making orange wine is being revived after being made nearly 6,000 years ago in Eastern Europe. Surprisingly, winemakers do not add oranges to the wine at all. Unlike the latest beer styles, the wine naturally comes by its color. Fermented from white wine grapes, the orange wine comes from increased skin contact during the fermentation process. The white grapes are treated by makers like red grapes, preserving the bolder body and tannins while still retaining the bolder body and tannins. As a result, the normally white wine will turn into a vibrant orange shade.

Despite the wine's secrecy, orange wine makes appearances at wine shows. Vineyards in the United States to Australia display their orange efforts from the United States to Australia. Get in on the tasting and find a bottle to share!
