We've always been intrigued by Georgian wines. In many ways, Georgia the original home of natural winemaking with a history going back 8,000 years. Furthermore, the trends of orange wine and amphora winemaking that are now in vogue started in Georgia. With an aim to go back to the 'motherland,' we searched diligently for a Georgian producer that makes clean and delicious minimal intervention wines. We're overjoyed to partner with Anapea Village. Khatia and Gocha started Anapea Village and their journey in 2013. A wife and husband team, they planted vineyards and built a winery in the east of Georgia to rehabilitate the traditions of Georgian grape growing and winemaking.  

From the start, they've farmed organically.  Only indigenous varieties are planted in their vineyards. Harvest typically occurs in early September and is completed by hand.  Once the grapes reach the winery, fermentation occurs on skins for red and white grapes in qvevri. The winery has 2 sets of qvevri, one for fermentation and one for aging. Both are buried below ground but at different levels. For fermentation, qvevri buried just below the earth's surface are used. With a slightly warmer ambient temperature, the environment is perfect for fermentation and extraction.  Following six months of maceration, the wines are racked off the skins and gross lees to another set of qvevri, buried 6 meters below ground. With a cooler temperature, this zone is perfect for aging and stabilizing wines. The wines are bottled with minimal to no sulfur and are neither fined nor filtered. The result is clean, concentrated, and balanced wines that we're delighted to introduce to the US market.

In the hands of Khatia, Kisi producers a more savory and layered style of traditional amber wine. 6 months on skins in qvevri with an additional 6 months of aging in a cooler set of qvevri. Unfined and unfiltered. Bottled with minimal sulfur as necessary.
