They are meditative wines, sumptuous and subtle.
Unique surroundings impart uncommon tastes.
Despite its relatively compact footprint, Georgia has an incredibly varied climate and topography that make it ideal for cultivation—and some of its regions are distinctly optimal for viticulture.
Shielded from extremes in temperature, vines are protected from the harsh sun and bitter cold. The Caucasus Mountains nearby are full of natural streams, which drain mineral-rich water into the valleys— and help contribute the characteristic flavors of this region’s wines. In fact, the Kolkheti Lowland, near the shores of the Black Sea, is densely covered by rich mineral deposits that have been carried down by western Georgia’s major rivers—the Enguri, Rioni, and Kodori.
