Did you know that...?

  • It is Georgians that have known the wine the longest!

    Wine has been known to Georgians for over 8000 years. The proof for this are the age-old grape stones that archeologists uncovered in Shulaveri. Should you want to see the proof of the Georgian ancient knowledge of wine with your own eyes, visit the Georgian National Museum. There you will find a vessel used for manufacturing wine - a kvevri amphore, which is easily 6000 years old.

  • Tamada, meaning: the master of ceremony and cherishing life

    Georgians love spending long hours at the table. It is then when they enjoy the excellent food, wonderful wine, and - most of all - cherish life! Especially during toasts. Tamada, the master of ceremony, after raising his glass begins a long speech, effusively expressing gratitude for the picturesque land, success in life, good friends, loving family, full table, and many, many others

  • UNESCO, wine and song

    The world's "key figures" appreciate Georgian wine. Therefore, they decided to place the traditional method of its production (kvevri) on the Intangible Cultural Heritage list. This case of public appreciation of the Georgian customs is not first, however. Georgian polyphonic singing was placed on the same list five years earlier.

  • The wealth of grapevines

    Each region of Georgia offers an opportunity of trying a different taste of wine. This the country owes to its varied climate and the wealth of vine varieties. The National Wine Agency divides Georgia into 6 wine-growing regions: the most important and the largest is Kakheti and Kartli, Meskheti, Imereti, Racha-Lechkhumi, and the Coast of Black Sea.

  • Marani - a cellar for storing wine

    The reason for the renown of this singular dark room in Georgian houses is the popularity of the original wine production method - kvevri. The production begins conventionally: with squeezing out the juice and pouring it (along with pomace and stones) into specially prepared clay vessels. This is where the "fun" starts. To make the juice fermentate, the vessels are carefully sealed and dug in earth for five or six months. With this production process, the winemaker must be extremely careful! Every slightest negligence may be detrimental to the quality of wine.

  • The inimitable alphabet

    It is among the 14 original alphabets still in use in the world. According to some sources, it dates back to the 3rd century BC. The Georgian script has been dynamically developing throughout the years, eventually resulting in several current variations: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri, and the contemporary Mkhedruli. Some say that the Georgian writing resembles grapevines.
