Unit price per 

A both unique and complex character to fall in love with over and over. This bold orange amphora wine spoils you with carefully picked flowers and rich honey and surprises with minerality and subtle nutty flavours. The cloudy orange hue and pleasant bitterness reminds us of a sunset in a most poetic scenery.

GRAPES

100% pinot grigio made orange, from Casa Roma, in the diverse wine region Veneto, Italy.

Tasting Notes

This orange wine has a vibrant golden colour with aromas of orange peel, honey, and apricot on the nose. It is complex with flavours of dried fruit, spices, and a slight nuttiness from the skin contact of the pinot grigio grapes. The moscatel adds a touch of floral sweetness and enhances the aromatic profile of the wine. The tannins are present but not overpowering, giving the wine structure and a pleasant mouthfeel. 

Veneto, Italy
The Veneto wine region boasts an impressive lineup of reds, from the fruity Valpolicella to the bold and intense Amarone, not to mention the sweet Recioto. It also offers crisp and refreshing whites like the ever-popular Soave and sparkling Prosecco.

Loire, France
Nestled in the heart of France you will find the Loire wine region. Named after and known for France's longest river and consisting of four different regions. This French region is renowned for its sweet chenin blanc wines. Despite their exceptional quality, they remain somewhat undervalued.

This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged with skins in a clay amphora for 4 months, using an ancient winemaking technique. The amphora's natural porosity allows oxygen to seep into the wine, enhancing its texture. Our organic wine yeast and a low level of added sulfites are the only additives in this wine, besides pure grape juice. To clarify the wine, we used a cellulose filter.

Look no further for a wine that loves food as much as you do. This orange asks for rich dishes with sparkling flavours as complex as itself. Pair with roasted chicken or pork, bold curries and spicy Asian classics. And - something completely different - a must-try next to blue or aged cheeses.
