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.

  • Mildiani Saperavi Khakheti Republic of Georgia 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A complex wine that benefits from a few minutes to oxidize. Excellent with a rich meal or by itself. Woody flavors with a hint of sweet fruitiness that disappears into the overall flavor. Read More
