The wine is so precious for them that like a living creature they built a house for it – Marani, buried Qvevri (clay jars) under the ground and implemented the unique method of making wine, which made Georgian wine famous worldwide (Georgian wine is on a list of UNESCO Intangible Heritage). After squeezing the grapes unlike European methods, Georgians keep grape juice and skins together in a huge Qvevri under the ground.

You can taste best quality wines made according to traditional and European methods. This country is rightly referred as a cradle of wine.
