Palate Press staff writer Simon Woolf is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to fund a book entitled Amber Revolution – How the world learned to love orange wine. The illustrated 250-page book tells the full, forgotten story of orange wine, from Friuli & Slovenia to Georgia and beyond.
According to the Kickstarter page,
Amber Revolution is the first book worldwide to tell the full forgotten story of orange wine (white wine made like a red wine). White grapes are left in contact with their skins for days, weeks or months during fermentation, creating stunning complexity, unusual aromas and intense flavours.
The extended skin contact gives these wines bold amber, russet or orange tints. The technique is ancient but the hype is new and fast growing.
We couldn’t be prouder of Simon! For more detail, check out the campaign page or watch the video below:
