If you're looking to expand your wine palate, "orange" wine is a fun and exciting place to start. The correct term for this type of wine is skin-contact wine, which refers to the way it is made. White grapes are fermented with the skins still on, which gives the wine its color. This is exactly how red wine is produced. The longer the musk (grape juice) ferments with the skins, the bigger and bolder the final product will be. The wine will also be deeper in color and take on more red wine characteristics. Skin contact wines can be made from any white grape and range in color from pale amber to deep orange. Are you intrigued yet? Check out these labels and get sippin'!
