My husband and I bottled orange wine last week after almost a month of maturing. We used blood oranges and pink rosé. Yesterday, we had the first taste of Province. I don't drink alcohol at all, except a glass of wine on special occasions, but sitting on a table with dishes of white earthenware, sunflowers in a terracotta pottery, French blue cheese, olives and peppercorn pâté, and a baguette with Seville oranges marmelade, I can have a glass of vin d'orange even if only to admire the color...
|In summer, serve it chilled, or over ice with a twist of orange, or “tall” with soda. |
