Taste through the many shades of skin-contact wines and discuss the complexity of it all at the next Eater Wine Club, hosted by wine writer and author Alice Feiring on Tuesday, November 12. We’ll blind-taste a couple of Feiring’s favorite skin-contact wines at the moment in a taste-around setting at the Eater Test Kitchen. Wines will be paired with snacks and bites from Ferris’s chef Tyler Heckman — it’s all included in the $40 ticket. There’s a $50 ticket too, which includes a copy of Natural Wine for the People that you can pick up in-person at Wine Club.
Feiring’s book Natural Wine for the People tackles the many debates of the natural wine genre, including the currently incredibly popular yet much debated world of skin-contact wines. Commonly referred to as “orange” wines because of their typically amber color, these wines are made when white grapes are fermented with the skin on for any amount of time. They range widely in color, and calling them “orange” doesn’t quite cover it.
