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.
