National Orange Wine Day

National Orange Wine Day is a holiday observed annually on October 6th. The purpose of this holiday is to celebrate orange wine—a wine that, surprisingly, doesn’t contain any oranges at all. This type of wine is actually a white wine made with grape skins and seeds left in contact with the juice.

The result is a wine with a deep orange hue and a taste that’s completely different from other types of white wine. It’s also a wine that most people don’t know about, even though it was first made over 6,000 years ago.

The History of National Orange Wine Day

National Orange Wine Day was created in 2018 by The Real House Wine—a blog dedicated to different types of wine. They celebrated it at Ruffian in New York City—an establishment that had one of the largest selections of orange wines. It has since been enjoyed all across the U.S. by people who are fans of this type of wine.
