Written by renowned orange wine expert and award-winning writer Simon J. Woolf, Amber Revolution is the world's first book to tell the full, forgotten story of this ancient wine (white wine made like red wine) and its modern struggle to to be accepted. It is a story of lost identity, struggle for survival and pioneering winemakers, from the Caucasus to the Adriatic.
White grapes are left in contact with their skins for days, weeks or months during fermentation, which creates amazing complexity, unusual aromas and intense flavors. Prolonged contact with the skin gives these wines amber, red or orange hues. The technique is old, but the craze is new and growing rapidly.
This book features the profiles of 180 of the best producers from 20 countries around the world and is packed with all the information you need to find the best orange wines in the world, as well as advice on how to buy them, taste them, to match them and age them.
Illustrated with over 150 specially commissioned photos, Amber Revolution is an essential reference book for any wine lover, sommelier, retailer or producer who loves orange wine.
