WINE FROM AMPHORAS

is a exotic wine that discreetly hides its noble origin, invites you to enjoy and to reflect on the simple values that land donates to us.


According to an ancient procedure, we have cherished wine that long ago was enjoyed by old Romans and Greeks.


The process of creating wine starts by selecting and separating only healthy grapes, which are then maceratingin an amphora on the grapeskin next six months wine is then dispensed and left to stay in amphora until it is one year old. After this period, wine is moved to 4tons oak vessels, where it stays  for another year.


This wine can be enjoyed even after several years.



CLAY VESSELS FROM GEORGIA

Amphoras are the oldest wine vessels.They are known to have been used in 3000 BC.

Clay from Georgia is considered to be the best clay for amphoras. These amphoras are from Georgia. The volume of each of these amphoras is approximately 2000 l. During the harvesting of wine grapes, grape seeds are removed, grapes are then gently squeezed (in the past people trampled them barefoot ) and put into amphoras.

For some reason fermentation in these amphoras lasts long.White wines fermentation lasts up to six months, while red wine fermentation lasts up to 3 months.


During fermentation in amphoras carbon dioxide is released and it protects wine by preventing wine oxidation. When the fermentation is over and gases are no longer released, grape solids are removed and amphoras are covered with earth so that the wine can age until the next harvest, when it must be taken out of the amphoras and put into wooden containers where it stays for a year, and the empty amphoras are filled with fresh grapes.These wines smell a little of beeswax because the interior of amphoras is covered with beeswax.
