Georgia, a small country in the eastern part of Europe. Hidden for many years behind the iron curtain of the Sovjet-Union has a unique position in our history of civilization. Slowly we are learning more and more of the importance of this magnificant country with it’s unique culture.
Amidst the large neighbouring historical empires, many have tried to conquer this country. But none of these empires have succeeded to opress the strong will of the Georgian people to retain their own identity,
This has resulted in a country which has their own unique language and handwriting, their own culture, cuisine and off course: art of winemaking.
Recovered clay vessels known as Qvevri’s have been proven to be as old as 8000 years, making Georgia the oldest wine making country in the world. This unique style of wine making where fermentation is taken place in clay vessels, buried underground – is preserved and used even today for making fantastic and unique wines. With up to 540 different grapes, mostly unknown to many Europeans, this country has a huge selection of tastes to offer for wine lovers.
