Orange Wine Tasting Events
Hosted by Donna Bulika
Greetings! My name is Donna, and while I don’t work in the wine industry, like many of you, I have a deep appreciation for wine. Red wine is my go-to choice, but I also enjoy white wines during the summer months. I always wished there was a type of wine that bridged the gap between red and white, and I recently discovered Orange wine during a trip to Croatia in 2021.
Since returning to Toronto, I have been on the hunt for Orange wines to purchase at local LCBOs and small stores, but I found that none of them could compare to the local Croatian Malvasia grape wine. Luckily, I crossed paths with Tanya from “Croatia Unpacked,” who imports wines from Croatia. I have sampled all of their Orange wines and even tried some from France, Spain, and local Ontario producers.
My goal is to keep exploring and discovering the best Orange wines available locally and introduce them to other Toronto residents. I would love to attend Orange wine festivals in Austria or Slovakia to expand my palate further. Perhaps one day, more restaurants in Toronto will feature Orange wines on their menus!
If you share my passion for Orange wine or want to learn more about it, please join me on this journey of discovery. Let’s explore the Orange wine world together!
