Go to Top

As the scorching days of summer gradually give way to the crispness of autumn, it’s time to savor the last moments of this season with a touch of sophistication. Whether you’re soaking in the final rays of sunlight on a rooftop, hosting an outdoor barbecue, or simply seeking a delightful companion for those warm evenings, the world of wine offers a palette of options to enhance these moments. In the realm of wine, orange wines and rosés emerge as distinct and captivating choices that resonate with the vivacity of summer. 

Orange wines, known for their intriguing amber hues, are the result of extended skin contact during the winemaking process. This method imparts a complex spectrum of flavors, combining the freshness of white wines with the depth of reds. On the other hand, rosés, with their enchanting shades ranging from pale blush to vibrant coral, embody the very essence of summer. Crafted from a diverse array of red grape varietals, these wines strike a delicate balance between the lushness of reds and the crispness of whites. Check out IMBOLDN’s curated selection of the finest orange wines and rosés, perfectly suited to bid adieu to summer in style.
