Georgia has an 8,000 year old history of making wine.  Numerous archeological discoveries have left historians in no doubt that Georgia is the birthplace of wine.  What makes Georgian wine making so unique is their centuries old wine making technique, known as Quervi.  Wine is fermented in clay vessels to create rich organic wines using the same methods used in the Neolithic era.  This ancient Quervi winemaking technique is now listed as a UNESCO intangible heritage.  Georgia has over 500 indigenous grape varieties in 10 wine making regions with a variety of climates and mesoclimates where wine is very much a part of Georgian life and culture.
