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 »

  • Mildiani Saperavi Khakheti Republic of Georgia 2007


    I give this high ratings just for its uniqueness, especially for the price. The slight lavender nose is quite a contrast to the bold leather and smoke flavors that come out when first sipping. There is just a hint of acidity to finish it off. Normally, I'm not a fan of acidic reds, but it is a nice complement to this complex wine. Read More

Legs took a bit of time to form due to all the particulate matter.Nose is very yeasty and earthy with overtones of mint and allspice. Taste is almost plastic, with dark pit fruits and again a hint of mint and vegetal matter. The yeas... Read More
