Summary

So – orange wine. Is it any good? Does it sell?

What qualifies a wine to be ‘orange’?

And who’s going to win our argument about one particularly divisive orange wine?!

Dive into the controversial, topical and intriguing subject of orange wine with us as we chat with Saša Radikon of iconic orange wine producer Radikon (who gives us an exclusive revelation about a new project) and nautral wine guru Doug Wregg of Les Caves de Pyrene.

We taste (and largely disagree about) orange wines from Mlečnik, Vagabond and Dario Prinčič (more details below).

Peter also gets very excited about his ‘lamb litmus test’…

This is the second and final episode in our epic two-parter on orange wine. You don’t need to listen to the first episode to enjoy this one, they stand alone. But Episode 1 features Mateja Gravner and Simon Woolf, author of the brilliant book Amber Revolution (for which we have a 20% discount code, see below).
