Amber Orange: A masterclass on skin-fermented whites

  • Wine Sentience Hub Level 1, 104 Vivian Street Wellington 6011 New Zealand (map)
Amber Orange

Join Master of Wine, Stephen Wong on a tutored tasting through the wonderful world of orange and amber wines. A proto-white wine technique dating back to 6000BC in Georgia, it has established a hardcore audience in the natural wine community.

In this class, learn about the traditions and developments in understanding of how these skin-fermented white wines are made; from qvervi to giare and tinaja, short and long fermentations, the various archetypes in Europe and the emergence of modern styles in the Antipodes. We will be spanning the breadth of production methods from Kakheti to New Zealand via nine carefully selected and hard-to-find wines.
