Orange Wine search

  • 2

I tried a glass of orange wine at Masten Lake in Williamsburg. While I can't rave about the meal, I was intrigued by the wine. Orange wine is NOT wine made from oranges. It is a wine that has an orange tone to it (close to the tone of a rose), and, essentially, is made from white wine variety grapes, but unlike white wine, the skins are left on during production.
I am wondering if anyone knows of a wine store that has any sort of orange wine selection. I live in Ft. Greene - so the closer the better - but I'll take what I can get!

      I have never had orange wine, but I love the odd roses and will certainly look for this. I googled orange wine, nyc and found among other things an Eric Asimov piece from the NY Times that mentions about 6 diff specific wines. when in doubt google, SHanDeez. good luck.
