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.

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 »

  • Blackstock Merlot Reserve 2005


    Top qualityMore translucent than expected for a Merlot. Rich fruit nose, some woody oak. Palate very smooth and balanced. Red fruit, spice, maraschino cherry. Well integrated tannins. Adequately complex, notable in a single varietal. Notably long finish.Would lay down well for three years plus. Read More
