Georgian Wine Cellar In Virginiawien cellar kvevri amphora

In Georgia, the traditional method of wine production continues to be based on the use of the amphora, called "kvevri" They are usually completely sunken in courtyards adjacent to the houses or in the "marani"- proper masonry wineries. Winemaking techniques, unchanged over the centuries, and long maceration on the skins, pips and peduncles contribute to making the wine fermented in kvevri absolutely unique and incredibly rich in polyphenols and aromatic compounds.

aging in earthware might have given it an interesting twist but perhaps business wise it wasnt doable.
