This 30 minute bitesize session covers the key facts you need to know about orange wine.

Event details


The production of orange wine can be traced back 5,000 years, and it has recently made a comeback. The name can be misleading, the wine has nothing to do with oranges, but instead white grape varieties are left to ferment with their skins in contact with the juice, leading to an ‘orange’ appearance. Ahead of National Orange Wine Day on 6 October, Anjali will discuss the history of orange wine, how it is made, key flavour characteristics, and how to pair it with food.

The new series of free bitesize 30-minute webinars are open to anyone and are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about wine.
