Baarsma Wines developed a new wine concept: Prince d’Orange is a southern French wine, sunny and fruity, harkening back to the Golden Age, a glorious time in Dutch history when Willem I, hero of the Dutch independence, acquired the Principality of Orange. The title “Prins van Oranje” has been carried by the royal heads of the Netherlands ever since. Orange is now the national colour of the Netherlands, the vibrant shade seen on sports jerseys and festival accessories at events like the Olympics, the World Cup or national Dutch holiday King’s Day. And this wine captures that colour’s spirit – full of fiery but friendly pride and joy – while also recalling the sun and warmth of the Vaucluse Principauté d’Orange IGP, a colourful part of the Vaucluse production area that’s beloved by tourists.
