Just for Fun

Skin contact wine, also known as orange wine, is a type of wine made from white grapes that are fermented with their skins. This process gives the wine a slightly orange hue and adds tannins, texture, and complexity to the flavor. The wine can have a range of flavors and aromas, depending on the grape variety and the length of time the skins are left in contact with the juice. Skin contact wines are often described as having a fuller body and more intense flavor profile than traditional white wines. They are often enjoyed with food, particularly dishes with strong flavors or spices.
