Marissa Ross and her thoughts about calling 'orange' wine ‘orange’. Spoilers: she insists on 'skin-contact'. But what do you think?
PS. Three out of five wines, she reviewed, are on our wine list: #sextant, #ageno, #dinavolo
Good wines indeed #justsaying Read more on her Instagram @marissaaross or via the link below

I've officially launched my campaign to end "orange wine" and get everyone saying "skin-contact wine" because let's be real, orange is not a wine. It's not a grape. It's not a winemaking technique. IT'S A COLOR GOD DAMN IT, and just one of MANY in the vast spectrum of skin-contact wines. Calling it “orange wine” is limiting you as a consumer because there are so many different & delicious shades of skin-contact wines to drink. Read about it on @bonappetitmag, link in bio. PS. I did not come to this conclusion lightly. The term “skin-contact” is already widely used inside the industry & out, and after talking with importers, skin-contact seemed the most consumer friendly. PPS. If you have questions about where to buy the wines, please know I tag the shops & importers in my posts. This is true 99% of the time, even when people are like asking me where my jeans are from, so just make sure to read the captions/check the tags. Thanks! #MARwines
