Wine

“Wine can be considered with good reason as the most healthful and hygienic of all beverages.” – Louis Pasteur

Georgia is considered by many to be the birthplace of wine, and its history can be traced back over 8000 years when the people of the South Caucasus discovered that if wild grape juice was buried in a pit over winter, it turned into wine. This led to Georgians cultivating grapes and burying clay vessels, or kveris, to create wine – sometimes for as long as 50 years for a true vintage.
