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 »

  • Mukuzani Special Reserve Tbilvino 2003


    Nice example of Georgian wine making. Clean and clear. Opaque dark purple colour, rose water rim. Long legs, sediment! Black caramelised fruits, raisins and vanilla on the nose. A bit of smoke and earth. Med+ alcohol, med + tannins. Blackberries and spices. Very long finish. Very good wine which can be drunk now and also can age well. Read More
