Wonderlust Travel publishes an article =Georgia on My Mind= dedicated to Georgian wine making culture and history. The author, Alex Alan, personally visited Georgia and was exposed to the classical and traditional wine-making methods. He specifically emphasizes =Qvevri= wine making methods throughout the article.
-Georgia has been making wine for around 8000 years. They re really good at it, and the country is a spectacular place to visit-, says Alex, who was impressed with Georgia s hospitality, traditional food and exquisite taste of wine.
-Ghvino, the word for =wine= in the Republic of Georgia, is as much a part of their national heritage as Flamenco is to Spain, or spice to India. Unlike the colder temperatures of Russia (Georgia s neighbor to the north) the comfortable climate here feels more like northern California.
Grape cultivation is performed across the country and winemaking is a family-based tradition that has been passed down over generations for 8,000 years. This ancient date was affirmed by the discovery of a single grape seed found in an ancient clay pot used to make wine carbon-dated to around 6,000 BC and now proudly displayed in the Georgian National Museum, he adds.
