The Sibiliano wines are made by Cantina Europa, a collection of over 1,000 members involved in all sectors of agriculture and are produced from organic grapes gathered at their Trapani winery
Europa Sensale Orange Bianco 2022
From Sibiliana Vini, a brand new and very special wine, made with white Catarratto grape and turned into a wine with an orange colour.
Orange wines are wines produced with white grapes, but vinified like red wines, with maceration (lasting from a few days to several months) of the must in contact with the skins and yeasts. This allows the wines to acquire substances which make them different from both whites and reds from a visual, olfactory and tactile point of view.
The origin of Orange wines seems to be sought in present-day Georgia thousands of years ago. Here the wines were macerated inside the Kvevri, clay containers very similar to the terracotta amphorae used today
