Orange wine

Designation for a similar red wine produced wine as next to White wine and Rose fourth colored wine type. Other names include alternative wine, amphora wine, Artisan Wine, natural wine, Natural Wine and Raw Wine. The foaming products are called Pétillant naturel or Pét Nat. All of these, however, have no legal meaning. Orange Wine is not allowed fruit wine from oranges like tarongino or one with orange peel flavored Wine like Vino de Naranja be confused (both Spain). If the new name Orange Wine did not exist, it would have to be called white wine. It is an already thousands of years old method. In the antiquity until the late Middle Ages, red and white wine grapes were grown mainly mixed in the vineyard, harvested together and one maceration subjected. This got much more tannins and dyes in the wine and gave, depending on the ratio of white and red grapes as well length of fermentation dark yellow, orange to reddish wines. At that time, there were hardly any color and taste red wines or white wines, as we know them today.
