The first orange wines were made 4,500 years ago in Georgia, where traditionally the grapes were not pressed before fermentation began.

To make an orange wine, the grapes macerate with all their solid parts (seeds, skin, stalk). The components of the skin and the stalk then release pigments and tannins, which give the wine that special orange colour with golden glints. The sweet bitterness that emerges from this whole bunch maceration is characteristic of orange wines.
