What is “Orange Wine”?


Balistreri Vineyard’s white wines are especially unique and made in a natural style now know as “orange wine”. The white grapes are fermented on the skins, like a red wine, which imparts a rich, deep color and flavor. They are not filtered or fined and bottled without racking or cold stabilization.

This natural and historic style of white wine making produces a golden-orange hue in the wines, which also may develop harmless sediment as they age. These “orange” white wines should be served only moderately chilled to preserve the body and aroma.

    • 2022 Viognier | Avant

    • $32.00
    • Pineapple notes on the nose and dried mango on the palate make this “Orange“ style Viognier a tropical paradise. The texture and body is what sets this Viognier aside from others in its category. A smooth finish of soft tannin gives this wine shoulders, enough to bump up against roasted chicken and other hardy dishes this winter.

    • Rose made from Petite Sirah? As surprising as that is, we couldnt be more pleased with our first ever Petite Sirah Rose! The color is bright ruby pink, darker than most Rose due to the robust and deep characteristics of this bolder grape. Aromas are fresh and sensational, yet ripe and more rich - bruised strawberry and smashed apricots. The palate reflects plump squeezed strawberries and is balanced with a lively refreshing acidity, finishing fully dry. A lovely Rose to pair with savory spring dishes, or bitter summer salads.
