A amazing orange aperitif from Distilleries et Domaines de Provence in the Provence region of France. Orange Colombo is the popular descendant of hippocras (sweetened wine in which cinnamon and cloves were infused). A well balanced blend of orange and rosé wine, but be warned this is strong! A few mils and you taste it!
