The home of wine
With an 8,000-year history of winemaking, Georgia is the original land of wine. Meaning ‘land of farmers’ in Greek, Georgia is a fertile valley between the Caucasus, with over 500 unique grape varieties and especially, the real way of making wine.
GEORGIAN TRADITIONAL WINE;
wine as it is meant to be
Georgia has more than 500 unique grape varieties found nowhere else in the world. Combined with natural farming practices and production in kvevri, traditional Georgian wines have been the drink of royalty for thousands of years. These are the wines that Homer wrote about, the wine that Cleopatra drank. It is wine as it is meant to be.
Georgia is one of the top-ten producers by volume. European-style wines (as opposed to kvevri wines) are also made with the unique Georgian varities, using the most modern equipment and techniques. These wines will delight you, and at a very reasonable cost, especially when compared to other European wines.

While there are around 5,000 grape varietals in the world, only about 20 make up most of the world’s production, with about 60 others in minor production. With over 500 varietals found nowhere else, Georgian wines are truly special, giving aromas and flavours that surprise even sophisticated wine connoisseurs.
Kvevri – the world’s original
Traditionally, Georgian wine is made in large clay jars that are buried underground. The wine ferments and matures at a natural earth temperature
of around 15 degrees C, and the clay allows for micro-oxygenation to occur. This means the wines become high in polyphenols, giving health benefits as well as an enhanced mouthfeel, excellent structure and superior finish.
