From ancient times Georgia has been known as a country of grapes and wine.
Traditional Georgian wine is hardly imaginable without a “Kvevri”. It is large earthenware vessels used for the fermentation, storage, and aging of traditional Georgian wine.
Resembling large, egg-shaped amphorae without handles, they are either buried below ground or set into the floors of large wine cellars.
Traditional places for Kvevri-making are different villages. One of them is Vardisubani ( Kakheti) where our photo was taken.
The family, where we were still using the aged knowledge of making Kvevri.
