Georgian producers create white, red and rosé wine, not to mention sparkling and dessert wines, as well as brandies. 

What is a qvevri?

Qvevri is the name given to the unique clay pot with which some Georgian wine is still produced to this day. Like a larger version of an amphora, the qvevri is used to ferment grapes to produce wine. Pips, stalks, flesh, skin and all are thrown into the qvevri, which is then buried under ground, to allow the grapes to work their magic, undisturbed. Wines are left to mature for around six months before being unearthed at long last, ready for bottling and enjoying

Is Georgian wine natural?

Yes, Georgian wine is natural. This means no unnatural preservatives, nasties or sulphites are added during its production. All wine has sulphites in, as the chemical naturally occurs in grapes. However, some producers add additional sulphites into their wines to aid preservation and maintain freshness, this isn’t necessary with Georgian wine.

Why is Georgian wine popular?

Georgian wine has been steadily growing in popularity over the last decade. A buzz has been generated about natural wine during the last several years, and Georgian wine has benefited from this renewed interest. Georgian wine has become widely drunk in the United States, including the Bay Area around San Francisco, and has even been making waves in the UK, due to wine sellers importing special Georgian wines, and fine dining restaurants adding it to their wine lists.

We aim to be a part of this movement, bringing Georgian wine to the masses.
