GEORGIAN WINE. HOW IT IS CORRECT TO CHOOSE?

Georgia is a delightful and beautiful country! The combination of soft subtropics, the Black Sea, the flowering valleys of the foothills, the rocky mountains, and the deep gorges that pass through the Caucasus Mountains delight and conquer with their beauty. In the valleys are located kilometers of young vineyards. Georgia is one of the first countries where the cultivated grapes appeared, from which real Georgian wines are made. Georgians are very kind and respectful of this industry, one might even say religiously.

There is a huge amount of facts confirming that winemaking in Georgia has existed since ancient times. Findings were found, indicating that much attention was paid to winemaking. During the excavations of the burial grounds of the Bronze Age, jugs with traces of grape seeds were found. Imprints of grape leaves were found on the stones. Found equipment for making wine and dishes belong to the III-II millennium BC.

In eastern Georgia, there is a region called Kakheti. It is the center of winemaking in Georgia since ancient times. It was here that the method of making wine was opened, which remains traditional to this day. The peculiarity of this method is as follows: special cone-shaped vessels were used for fermentation and aging of wines. Their capacity was 500 decalitres. The jugs were buried in the ground so that the hole was at the level of the floor. With such an exposure does not occur abrupt changes in temperature, thus, such conditions are considered very favorable for long-term storage of wines. After harvest, the crop is processed in special wineries – Marani. In large vats (satsaneli), made of wood, the grapes were crushed with their feet. Squeezed juice flowed through special gutters into a pitcher buried in the ground for further fermentation, aging and storage.

The modern fermentation process is different. Grapes for 5 days ferments on pulp. Then the juice is separated and poured into a separate fermentation tank. Less expensive wines are made from pomace juice residues from the pulp. As for the white wine – it is in the pulp for a week, and wanders until the formation of the finished wine. This method of fermentation gives Georgian wines a pleasant tartness.
