Directions

Bring all ingredients except oranges to a boil (reserve wine bottles and corks), stirring until sugar has dissolved. Remove zest from oranges in a continuous spiral using a vegetable peeler and cut off any white pith with a paring knife. Reserve oranges for another use and divide zest between empty wine bottles. Fill bottles with orange wine and cool, uncorked, 1 hour. Cork bottles, then chill at least 4 hours.
