Wine of Georgia - features of the drink

The history of Georgian winemaking is extensive. It goes back more than several thousand years. That is why Georgian culture is directly connected with wine. About half a thousand varieties of grapes are grown on the territory of Georgia. Various types of wine are produced in the country: from dry to sweet.

Georgia's winemaking is characterized by a unique combination of traditional and modern ways of making the beverage. Authentic wineries and large productions still turn to the ancient way of making wine. Georgian wine is made in special clay jugs. Such a vessel is called a kvevri. The jug is placed under the ground - only the neck remains on the surface.
This method of manufacture allows you to maintain the necessary temperature in the vessel. The jug material is also coated on the inside with beeswax, which makes the production process environmentally friendly. The Georgian technology differs from the European one in that at all stages of production there is contact with the pulp (cake). Europeans, on the other hand, remove the pulp after the fermentation process.
However, only 10-15% of wine is produced this way. The rest is made using modern methods. But the taste of Georgian wines, regardless of the technology, continues to be excellent.

In Georgia there are varieties of grapes that are found nowhere else. That's why the taste of Georgian wines is unusual, full of interesting undertones. But it is all the more interesting to taste Georgian wine.
Winemakers produce white, red, and rosé wines. White wines are made from white grape varieties, but sometimes a small amount of red varieties may be added. Pink and red wines are made from red varieties.
White wines have a grassy flavor at their core. Fruity and floral notes can be highlighted as additional notes. Orange, apple, mimosa, nuts and even green pepper - all these flavor components can be felt in Georgian white wines. Woody notes are also not uncommon. The color of white wines varies from pale sandy to dark gold.
Red wines are tart and rich in flavor. It is easy to catch berry and woody notes. Floral and herbal tones are noted in the aftertaste. Red wines with a distinct cherry or pomegranate taste are also found. Depending on the grape variety, the color of red wines varies from scarlet to richly cherry.

Combinations of Georgian wine and cuisine are incredible. Serving national Georgian cuisine with Georgian wine is a great idea. If it's not planned, it's worth following a simple pattern.
Red wine is better matched with meat dishes. Red wine is also a perfect accompaniment to vegetable dishes. White wine is served with fish and seafood, combined with desserts. These rules are not strictly observed in Georgia. There are no such fixed patterns of combining drinks with dishes as in Europe.
Georgia wine should be chilled to 10-12 degrees before serving. It is recommended to open the bottle just before pouring into glasses.
