“Homeland of wine” – this is what is being spoken about Georgia. Archeological materials consolidate the fact that the grape vine has first been cultivated on the territory of Georgia and the most presumably the first wine has been pressed out right here. Georgia has been associated with the wine culture by the eight thousand year history. Several historical discoveries and exhibits related to winemaking preserved in the museums are the obvious evidence of the above-mentioned. There are known more than 500 vine species in Georgia. It should be noted that the culture of making wine in Qvevri (large earthenware vessels used for the fermentation, storage and ageing of traditional Georgian wine) is inherent only to Georgia, which has been acknowledged by UNESCO in 2013 as a non-material cultural heritages that emphasizes the specialness of this method. Since the nineteenth century Georgian wine has been exported to the European market and enjoys great popularity. Diverse natural conditions of Georgia are the most favorable for developing the high-quality viticulture and winemaking. Consequently each region stands out for the grape varieties characteristic for it, which serves for making already worldwide known Georgian Unique wines.
