The Art of Winemaking

Georgians are delighted to share their history and their culture, especially in regards to how they produce wine.  In the region around Gurjaani, many people have their own vineyards or produce their own wine in their homes.  Wine is stored in the ground in kvevris which is a practice that dates back to ancient times.  **These images are from a modern wine factory and also from a 1400 year old monastery.

We were welcomed to a wine ‘factory’ where the owner actually opened a kvevri and we had the first taste of the wine!
