What Are Orange Wines?

Orange wines are made from white grapes that are fermented on the skins. This imparts a deeper hue to the wine that ranges from amber to tawny. Orange wines, in fact, get their name from this hue. The time spent on the skins also adds an extra depth of flavor, imparting the tannins red wines are known for but which are seldom found in white wines. It's a style often associated with Italy and Old World regions like Slovenia. Other than the unique approach, the style of wines vary wildly, but most will retain the delicate flavors of a white wine. The difference is that those delicate flavors are matched with astringency that comes from the tannins.
