'Orange' wines, also known as skin-contact white wine, skin-fermented white wine, or amber wine, is a type of wine made from white wine grapes where the grape skins are not removed, as in typical white wine production, and stay in contact with the juice for days or even months. This lends anywhere from an orange tint to a pronounced orange color to the wine.

Stolpman Vineyards Love You Bunches
From Santa Barbara County, a blend of orange muscat, pinot gris and mourvedre. No added sulfites. Popping tangerine peel flavors jump out of the glass. The color is so gorgeous it almost doesn't matter what it tastes like!
Maloof Where Ya PJs At 2020
A very natural wine from Willamette Valley. Technically an orange wine but you'll see it say 'rose-ish' on the back because it's fun like a rose, but came from Pinot Gris and Riesling. Great with Asian food.
Ovum Winery Old Love
A dry, white blend of Riesling, Gewurtztraminer & Muscat Blanc that dreams of capturing the summer sun in a bottle of wine. Aromas of fresh cut blood orange, salty lemon and aloe vera typify this racy, texturally rich orange wine.
Enderle & Moll - Weiss and Grau
An amber-tinged white of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris with a lightly tannic grip from around one week on the skins. There's a charming bouquet of orange blossoms, apricots and lanolin. The palate is textured with notes of yellow apple peels, dried nectarines, and marzipan. Everything is done naturally, with native ferments, no filtering or fining and nothing is added save a tiny dose of sulfites at bottling.
Livver Malvasia 2019
The nose shows orange peel, lemon balm, and sage with some bright aromas. The wine has a slight orange color showing the 60 days of skin contact and has a rich texture with good acidity and hints of kumquat. Delicious.
Bloomer Creek Chardonnay Gruner Veltliner 2020
A naturally fermented skin contact wine from the Finger Lakes. Characteristics of yellow apple, lime, honey, under-ripe peach, a hint of yeast, and subtle menthol notes. Complex and unfiltered.
Predominately Trebbiano with trace amounts of Malvasia and Sangiovese. Farmed organically. Proper orange color with plenty of fruit and yet deliciously savory!

Blend of trebbiano, malvasia and verdicchio from the Lazio region in Central Italy. On the nose, it’s rustic with notes of balsamic vinegar.
