Union Square | Skin Contact: Orange Vs. RoséOctober 26 2021 | 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
13 E. 13th Street, New York 10003
We like to say "orange is to white as rosé is to red". Orange wines, one of the world's oldest wine styles, is a white wine that spends time macerating with the skins of its grape, gaining complexity, subtle tannin, body, and color. If you love a summery rosé, chances are you will love orange wines as well. Let's explore the wine regions that made this style famous, like Northeast Italy, Sicily, Slovenia, Georgia, Greece, and how this style has been adopted by producers worldwide. Rosés are primarily made from red grapes only, with a shorter maceration with the skins than used for reds from the same grapes. There are multiple ways to craft a rosé, we'll discuss technique, common grape varieties used, classic and notable producers, food pairings, and more! We'll taste 6 examples of our favorite rosé vs orange wines. Which style will become your new favorite?
