Amber wine is the world’s oldest and most distinctive wine style, almost forgotten and abandoned after two world wars, then rediscovered half a century later to become one of the most on-trend wine styles of the present day. Millennia of Georgian history and the deep traditions of Slovenia and Friuli have inspired many modern styles and winemaking techniques around the world. The skin-contact style, in which white grapes are fermented with their skins like a red wine, has reinvented itself through a myriad of grape varieties, fermentation and ageing vessels, piquing the interest of wine enthusiasts who have affectionately coined the term ‘orange wine’ for their glowing glass. What is a Qvevri? Who uses clay amphorae? Why would you ferment grapes in the earth? Noble Rot will be showcasing wines from benchmark producers worldwide as we present the fascinating story of skin-contact styles, delving deep into the history, winemaking techniques and diversity of amber wines over a delicious four-course degustation menu. Explore the amber revolution - a special rags to riches story in which you'll discover how the world learnt to love orange wine.
