  • 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.
  • Unique varietals
    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.
  • European-style wines
    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.

Georgian traditional wine; wine as it is meant to be

For people in Georgia, wine is the 'blood of the earth' and a gift from God. For six months, the vine flourishes above the ground, then the harvest is crushed and returned to the earth. This is through fermentation and maturation in large clay vessels, called kvevri in the Georgian language. This one year cycle shows respect for the earth and produces the most wonderful wines.

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.
