Stir in 3/4 cup orange juice gradually and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
Stir in the butter, orange rind and wine.
Add orange sections and heat through.
Stack pancakes, spreading about 1/3 cup ricotta cheese between each layer and drizzling with a small amount of orange sauce.
Pile remaining ricotta cheese on top and add some of the orange sauce.
Cut in wedges and serve with remaining sauce.
Creamed cottage cheese may be substituted for ricotta cheese.
