Try something different with this fine, classic Orange wine. It’s lovingly crafted by two brothers – Peter and Fritz May – gifted, seventh generation winemakers. A white made using red wine methods, this Gewurz is delightfully aromatic, yet weighty.
"A white wine with lots of character and structure – a great food wine. Cherish the difference"
Kirsten Willis Buyer for Germany
Orange wine is the oldest style in the world, almost abandoned after two world wars, then recently rediscovered. Open your mind and your palate, and put your preconceptions aside. Hand-picked Gewurztraminer grapes are soaked on their skins, pressed and fermented, just like a red wine. The result is Gewurz’s classic big spice and lychee perfume with the structure and weight of a red. It’s made by brothers Peter and Fritz May, seventh generation winemakers at the Karl May estate in Rheinhessen. Both have studied oenology at university and travelled widely – Peter having worked in New Zealand and Fritz in Australia and Austria. Eco-friendly in the vineyard and non-interventional in the cellar, they have created this fine, complex wine.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
