Georgian Kveri/Qvevri Wine

Winemaking in clay vessels using methods and traditions going back 1000s of years is alive and well in Georgia today.  The winery I visited in Kakheti dated back to the 1800s, still using the underground kveri, or qvevri, fermenting and storage method.

Traditional Wine Drinking Vessel, called Kantsi
