Orange Wine

In this section you’ll find all of the white wine we’ve categorised as ‘orange’ – this means the juice has been macerated with the grape skins for as long as it takes to have a noticeable effect on the wine’s appearance, aromatics and tannic structure. Amber wine, orange wine, skin-contact wine, call it what you will – this collection features all of the idiosyncratic expressions that result from this ancient method. From masters of the art like Josko Gravner and Radikon to other noteworthy practitioners such as Slobodne and La Stoppa and plenty more besides. Organic, biodynamic and natural orange wine that never fails to play with your preconceptions.

  • Pedro Olivares Muscat Blanc d’Argila 2021 | Wayward Wines

    Pedro Olivares Muscat Blanc d’Argila 2021

    A very original Muscat wine, with lifted, aromatics and oily, concentrated volume in the mouth. The acidity is fair, very Mediterranean, but magnified with the rounded character of lees aging. Unctuous and very long on the palate. A great new addition...
