Meet the wine
Our Orange Vermentino by Terah Bajjalieh of Terah Wine Co. is 100% natural, 100% biodynamic, and 100% orange. Fermenting grapes with the skin on creates the bright terracotta hue, and results in the boost of tannins, texture, weight, and vibrant aromatics. Hello, tropical pineapple. Hello, Pacific coast minerality. Hello, new friend.
Terah, a self-proclaimed foodie, aims to make wines that pair well with all kinds of eats. And this orange stunner – made naturally with minimal intervention in a cooler region of California – does exactly that. Pair it with Thai food, Vietnamese food, roasted chicken or charcuterie. Or feel free to sip this easy-drinker on its own to brighten up any day.
