About

Amforen (dutch for amphorae) is a blog about skin-contact wines (“orange wines”), natural wine, lambic, and other spontaneously fermented beverages. The author (Aschwin de Wolf) promotes the use of organic ingredients, wild yeast, and the pursuit of terroir. As a native Dutch speaker, I also have a strong interest in historical Flemish documents about traditional lambic brewing and culture. I am the organizer of the Portland Fermentation Society.
