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.
