What *Else* Are We Drinking Now? Groundwork Picpoul Carbonique Paso Robles

Marshall has a dry, gorgeous, tangerine-y, peachy orange wine for you. Groundwork Picpoul Carbonique Paso Robles - California As summer stretches on and the heat beats down, who doesn't want to reach for a fun, refreshing drink?

Just when you think it's safe to cross your living room so you can take two new bottles of wine to your guests, Dracula appears with two bottles that you must try, "Or else."

What Are Drinking Now? 20,000 Leguas by Dominio de Punctum

Red or white? How about orange? 20,000 Leguas by Dominio de Punctum, 2018 Before we dive into a glass of this organic (& vegan) Spanish wine, let's get a little technical about what IS an orange wine: Orange wine (also called amber wine) is made from white wine grapes that have been fermented with skin contact, like a red wine. Now let's get into THIS bottle of orange — 20,000 Leguas. What I love about this Chardonnay blend is that it isn't just for the adventurous.
