I was a little nervous to try an "orange" (amber) wine because I had read about orange wines online and some people said you either love them or hate them. I'm already a maivino fan (sauvignon blanc is my fave, followed by rose!) so I was eager to try maivino's amber. To say I was surprised was an understatement! I loved it! Not only that, but my whole family loved it- I served it with dinner when my in-laws visited and it became our topic of conversation and everyone was excited to try it. It has an earthy flavor, not overly sweet, and went well with pretty much anything we were eating. I actually just came back here to order more and figured I would leave a review while I was at it. This is a fun wine to bring to parties or events, because not only is it in maivino's unique packaging, but now you have the amber/orange wine to talk about with guests, too. Highly recommend!
So glad Amber is finally here - complex but quaffable, interesting but approachable, and a perfect summer wine.
This is even better than the white and the white is so good!!! This has a light earthiness that I love about orange wines but is not super funky, so is very versatile. I’ve had it with chicken curry, pasta, grilled steak, crab cakes, and it all works. Love that I can have just half a glass at anytime!!
Work with people who careWe respect the land and hands behind the wine and work with those who share our ethos.
Organic farmingToday, only 3% of wine sold in the US is organic. We believe this should be the standard. All our vineyards practice organic farming free of pesticides and herbicides.
Use of Indigeneous YeastOur wines are fermented with yeast native to the vineyards which results in a longer fermentation time. Fermentation is when yeast converts sugar in the grape into alcohol. Using indigenous yeast produces more complex and layered tasting notes.
