It has been more than 6,000 years ago when the process of developing orange wine was discovered. It utilizes one of the simplest methods when it comes to making wine. Eric Asimov, a food writer from the New York Times, said that the process requires the organic white grape juice to be in contact with the grape skin for a period much longer compared to other processes. This process then gives the wine a cloudy amber color which is in contrast to the conventional results when creating red and white wine wherein the clarity resembles that of a mirror.
