What the f*** is orange wine? Here’s a hint: It’s not made from oranges…

Ancient, controversial, quirky, and utterly delicious, orange wine is the hip new kid on the vino block. It’s a favorite of sommeliers and winemakers who have been rediscovering its bewitching charms. A rule-breaking, genre-mashing, mysterious heart throb. 

In this class we’ll look at the long and venerable history of orange wine (also known as amber wine), learn what it is, and taste through the different styles of orange from countries and regions as varied as Georgia, Italy and, of course, Oregon.

Arrive between 4-4:15 for a glass of welcome bubbly. The class, as per usual, includes Sunday School illustrated handouts and a tasting flight of 4 additional wines to assist us on our orange wine journey around the world.
