Guardian Writes about Georgian Wine

Why is Georgia a hotspot for natural wines? The Guardian explains the reasons in its article, dedicated to Georgian wine.

“They’ve been making wine for thousands of years in this Black Sea country – and now it’s at the forefront of a renaissance in traditional methods,” the article reads.

The author of the article explains what Qvevri is and why it makes Georgian wines special.

“Depictions of this traditional, earthenware winemaking vessel, on T-shirts, tea towels and fridge magnets, fill the tourist shops in the spruced-up centre of the capital, Tbilisi,” the publication says.

The article says Qvevri is a symbol of just how proud the Georgians are of being the oldest winemaking country in the world; adding in November last year, archaeologists on a dig south of Tbilisi uncovered fragments of Qvevri with residual wine compounds dating back 8,000 years.

“The Qvevri renaissance has put Georgia at the forefront of winemaking fashion,” the Author says, and lists the best wines of Georgia.
