The mystery of Georgian wine lies in its simplicity and splendor. Vine has always been the muse of a Georgian man. Nobody knows exactly when the Georgian man started to cultivate it, to love it. But one thing is clear, wine followed the Georgian man, rejoiced with him and was filled up. For centuries it grew prettier, wiser and quieter.

8 000 Years of Winemaking

Georgian winemakers have been at it for at least 8 000 years now, since it was discovered, in some 6 000 BC, that if you placed grape juice in a shallow vessel underground, it would eventually ferment and turn into this wonderful liquid that we now know by the name of wine. Ever since, wine has been an intrinsic part of Georgian DNA. So much so, that even Saint Nino, the bringer of Christianity to Kartli, bore a cross made of vine - it could not have been any other way.

Winemaking Regions of Georgia

There are around 4000 grape varieties in the world. Thanks to unequaled climate and geographical conditions, over 500 of these are endemic to Georgia. However, only about 30 of these varieties are grown and harvested for commercial purposes.

Kakheti Sighnaghi

Kakheti

Up to 70% of Georgian wine is made from the grapes harvested at the vineyards of Kakheti. Here, the climate is mild and relatively dry, with an average annual precipitation of about 800 millimeters.

Qvevri - 8 000 Years of History

Qvevri is an egg-shaped clay vessel of around 800 liters in volume. Winemaking in Georgia started in qvevri at least 8 000 years ago. This ancient tradition continues to the day, proudly practiced by Teliani Valley among numerous other Georgian winemakers.

Usage of Qvevri.

Qvevri is buried deep underground and as the temperature below the surface remains relatively stable throughout the year, it serves as a natural refrigerator. In various regions of Georgia, Qvevri is not only used for storing wine, but perishable items like fruit, grains and pickled foods as well.

The clay used in qvevri has to be selected carefully, as certain minerals in its composition may affect the wine. A small amount of limestone is mixed in with the clay for stability, as well as its antiseptic

properties. Qvevri needs to be fired at a precise temperature - if you go too high, it falls apart, and if you go too low, the moisture makes it more susceptible to damage overtime.

Methodology

The qvevri method entails fermenting, maturing and ageing the wine in qvevri together with pomace. This part is done differently in different regions of Georgia, for example, in Kakheti they often leave all of the pomace in, while in Imereti - only about a third.

Why Qvevri?

Qvevri method has several advantages over the factory method. For example, when buried underground, qvevri retains a naturally stable temperature of 13°-15°, ideal for fermentation.

Names of Qvevri

In Georgian, there are around 12 names for Qvevri, however, Qvevri and Churi are the most commonly used ones. Other names found in “Sitkvis Kona” by Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani include: Khvibari, Qotso, Khalani, Dergi, Lagvini and Lagvinari.

The Oldest Qvevri

The various forms of Qvevri found in Georgia go back to the Neolithic era. The oldest Qvevri dates back to the VI-V century B.C., however, the earliest Qvevri, as we know it, is from an ancient settlement site near Rustavi and belongs to an early Iron Age.

The National Pride

Since 2013, the traditional qvevri wine making technique has been on the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Soil

The uniqueness of a terroir is defined by its soil. Soil is one of the most important factors in winemaking. Every single component of the soil is of great importance - depth of layers for root system development, clay content for sufficient water retention and chemical composition, for all necessary micro elements required for growth.

Mtavruli

There is nothing fundamentally Georgian without the big three − language, homeland and faith. Mtavruli, one of the 14 writings in the world, is an integral attribute of the language; hence our decision to name our wine after the script − like wine, a major component of our DNA − to communicate our culture to the world.
