GEORGIA IS CRADLE OF WINE

 

Georgia is the birthplace of wine.  Grape seeds have been found in Caucasian tombs 8000 years ago, along with wine implements such as clay vessels.

Nowhere else in the world is the evidence of viniculture so old.  there are over 500 indigenous species of grape (most used for wine) far more than anywhere else, most of them still completely unknown to the rest of the world.

Today most wine is still produced in exactly the same way it was long ago. Grapes are placed in large earthenware vessels called ‘qvevri,’ large enough to fit a person inside, buried in the ground up to their necks. These special wine vaults are then sealed and left to ferment for three or four months. The result is a tannin and vitamin-rich wine, completely organic and distinctively flavorful.
