wine history
Any tourist interested in attending the wine-making process will be welcomed in our wineries. Moreover you will have a chance to try the unique taste of different Georgian wines kept in cellars for years.

8,000-year-old material evidence of grape stones inside many antique clay vessels found in archeological excavations gives Georgia the right to be proudly called the birthplace of wine. In the works of Homer and Apollonius of Rhodes you can find information about the ancient traditions of vine growing. EvenGeorgian alphabet is modeled after the shape of the vine’s curly offshoots.

Wine is part of Georgian heritage including architecture, poetry, and songs, and is associated with celebrations, holidays, rituals and most importantly with Georgia’s religion the Christian Orthodox Church. According to ancient tradition, St. Nino preached Christianity in Georgia, bearing a cross made from vine wood and bound with her own hair.

There are more than 500 aboriginal sorts of grape in Georgia.Over the centuries numerous distinct ways of wine production were developed for local-Kakhetian, Imeretian and Kartlian wines. In the 17th century a famous French traveler Chardin wrote that no other country in the world produces as much wine of such a high quality as Georgia.
