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.

  • La Salada La Bufarrella 2019 | Wayward Wines

    La Salada La Bufarrella 2019

    Another deliciously piny, aromatic orange wine from La Salada. The grapes here macerate for 7 months, but it is only the free run juice that is bottled, meaning no pressing. This results in a much more gentle tannic influence from the skins and is a...
