‘Orange’ wine makes New Year’s splash

Sharing is Caring

A ‘new’ type of wine that undergoes a unique process to create its orange tint is actually an old idea that’s now getting attention at a New York City restaurant. Gavino Garay reports.

‘Orange’ wine makes New Year’s splash

It’s called ‘orange’ wine…even though it contains no oranges at all.

The unique ‘nectar’ gets its color through a process of extended maceration, where white grape skins remain in the wine for longer than usual.

Anfora restaurant in New York City is serving up the pigmented vino.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE CAMPANALE, CO-OWNER OF ANFORA, SAYING:

“I think a lot of people like the sense of discovery and for me these wines represent so much of what’s very old and what’s new.”

Joe Campale says orange wine was quite common decades ago — before dry white wines replaced it in popularity in the 1960s

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE CAMPANALE, CO-OWNER OF ANFORA, SAYING:

“I find with these wines you either love them or you hate them – there’s very little middle ground.”

Foodies say the wine would pair nicely with dark meat.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SETH RAPHAELI, ORANGE WINE DRINKER, SAYING:

“It’s woodsy. It’s like a complex white wine but you could serve it with a cheeseburger or meat.”

…another option as the world toasts the old year,,,and drinks to 2016.
