Georgian wine

Wine has long been an inseparable companion and a kind of visiting card of civilization. This remedy of stress removal and power restoration well tested and established over the millennia has become part and parcel of modern man’s everyday life, while its history takes us back to the origins of civilization.

Recent palaeobotanical and archaeological research gives us ground to assert that Georgia is the country of origin of cultivated grapevine and wine. Here was the cradle of that high agricultural civilization whose inhabitants started winegrowing at the dawn of the pre-historic times, having snatched wild grapevine away from the woods.
