Amber Revolution is the rags to riches story of orange wine – the world’s oldest and most distinct wine style, almost abandoned after two world wars, then rediscovered half a century later amidst controversy and misunderstanding.
Part compelling social history, part orange wine primer, Amber Revolution weaves its tale of oppression, struggle and persistence across the shifting borders of Friuli and Slovenia, to the Caucasus, Georgia and beyond.
Includes a guide to 180 recommended producers from 20 countries, plus tips for buying, food matching and enjoying orange wines.
