Georgian Wine

Wine has been produced in what is now called the Republic of Georgia for thousands of years, making it one of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world. It’s situated between the Caucus Mountains and the Black Sea, bordering Russia, Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. Many native grape varieties existed in the countrysides, and were eventually used for wine. 9000 year-old archeological findings indicate wine production, and the Georgian word “ghvino” is said to be the root of “vin,” “vino,” and eventually, “wine.” 

Wine production continued through the centuries as empires grew and nations claimed territories. In the 6th century, the Ikhalto monastery and academy was founded near Telavi. With wine production playing an important role in the newly-founded Christian religion, Ikhalto became an important center of viticulture and even established a wine academy. Georgia became a largely Christian nation and as a result, was mostly left alone Read more »

  • Amulet Mtevani NV


    During the tasting wine shows cherry and pepper flavors. Once, or twice I even smelled strawberry flavors. Unfortunately taste wasn't as good, as smell. Wine was short, and dominated by alcohol. (It's hard to believe it contains only 11%) Nothing more than a cherry can be felt. Read More
