SKU: CONTACT

Orange wine is becoming more and more popular, but it's not made from oranges! This wine is made from white grapes, but in a red style, meaning it's fermented on the skins before pressing. The skin contact gives the wine a beautiful color and rich flavor; something you'll definitely want to try at least once.

Contact is produced in partnership with Bin 707 Foodbar under the High Desert Wine Lab label, and is the house orange wine for Bin707 and Taco Party.

Winemaker Notes
Contact was made using La Crescent grapes, in the way that reds are normally done - fermented on the skins. This skin contact results in an orange color and a fuller body than your everyday white wine.

I was excited to try a new wine from Carlson. So many good wines lately! This one is a total miss. It was so acidic - like it had gone bad. It had no depth of flavor, very flat. We ended up dumping the bottle after trying it.

I had high hopes for this one as well! I like mostly fruit wines anyway! Peach wine and Cherry wine are why I joined the wine club in the first place... This one was not drinkable. One good sip and out it went! Gonna stick to what I know from now on!

Vegetal. At best an acquired taste but honestly doesn't have the best aftertaste. Maybe its your thing but don't expect it to taste like wines you know. notes of fermented fruits. aftertaste is a bit too sour.

I loved this wine! As a primarily red wine drinker, this was a great dry white to add to my summer drink list!
