Georgians are justifiably proud of their rich and historical winemaking culture, and as traditional methods are experiencing a revival, qvevri, an earthenware vessel used to store and age wine for thousands of years, has become the unofficial symbol of our country.
Georgia is considered the “cradle of wine”, they have been continuously producing wine in Qvevri for 8000 years. they realized that grape juice can be turned into wine by burying it underground for the winter. Some of the qvevris in which they were buried could remain underground for up to 50 years.
In our restaurant “TIFLIS” wines come directly from Georgia, made from natural grape juice, wines from clay vessels will win your heart!
