Sales Tools
About Wine
This is a 50%-50% blend of Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane grapes fermented and made in qvevri (large clay jars buried under the ground). This is an Amber or "Orange" wine style, but made in a lighter style with only 1 month of skin contact. It is a perfect introduction to the style.

Dilao (dee-la-oh) is a new brand from the Teleda/Orgo winery with the ambition to make fantastic Georgian Qvevri wines that can promote traditional Georgian wine techniques among a broad segment of the US market by over delivering on story and quality for the price.

About Wine
The 2014 Mtsvane had a tough act to follow in the magnificent 2013 Mtsvane from Shalauri. The good news is that they nailed it once again. For their 2014 Mtsvane Shalauri Wine Cellars sourced their Mtsvane grapes from the Manavi district of Kakheti region. This artisanal wine is produced by the traditional Qvevri Method -- an 8,000 year old uniquely Georgian that utilizes a huge clay jar, Qvevri, buried underneath the ground to allow wine fermentation and aging in an even, naturally cool condition. This wine sees extended skin contact, 6 months, in the case of the Mtsvane, and low interference in the vilification process.

About Wine
Kisi (pronounced Key-see) a rare varietal once almost extinct by the Soviets is on the rise again. Vinoterra made their first Kisi in 2006 when no one else was making a commercial Kisi. The 2006 Vinoterra Kisi has sparked a renaissance of the Kisi varietal, now their is sufficient planting of the varietal that tens of winery are now producing Kisi wines. Each year Gogi Dakishvili makes a limited amount of Kisi in the traditional qvevri style with 6 months of skin contact. Kisi tends to be more aromatic then Rkatisteli but with sound structure, aggressive tannin and balance acidity. It is a perfect varietal for the Kakhetian style ready for aging.

About Wine
Koba Kvatchrelishvili produces just over 3,000 bottles from his 3 hectares of sustainably grown and organically farmed vineyards. Koba has a background in modern winemaking, but he is a die hard fanatic for traditional natural Georgian qvevri wine; a tradition that he learned from his grandfather and now passes on to his sons and grandsons. Naotari is the culmination of a life dream to cultivate is own family vineyard and have enough to bottle and share with the world. Koba has only 0.2 hectares of Khikhvi, a rare and special Georgian varietal, and so this field blend is of Khikhvi, Rkatsiteli and Kisi of which only 1,500 bottles were produced. Koba, uses only naturally occurring sulfites and does not filter his wine. Naotari represents the latest in authentic Georgian qvevri amber wines to discover in the US.

About Wine
Soliko Tsaishvili's wines instantly transport you back to a crisp late October evening by a Kakhetian fireside, where friends are cooking mtsvadi (open fire grilled pork) in preparation for a feast. This 2013 Our Wine Rkatsiteli has as much character as its wine maker. Soliko started making wine as a hobby 30 years ago. He now farms 13.5 acres in Kakheti under biodynamics, some vineyards reaching 50 years old. Everything about this wine is done by hand by Soliko and his family destems the grapes and then adds some stems back along with the grapes in the traditional Georgian earthenware qvevri. After a spontaneous fermentation, the wine remains in the qvevri for about six months. That extended skin and stem contact makes for gripping wine, almost more food than drink.

About Wine
Vinoterra's Mtsvane is leading the way to a new renaissance of the Mtsvane (Mah-sa-vah-nay) grape varietal. Gogi Dakishvili started the Vinoterra Brand back in 2003 to help preserve traditional Georgian Qvevri wine making techniques by crafting commercial wines that communicate the distinct kakhetian style of qvevri wines while at the same time having broad appeal to markets that are unfamiliar with amber style wines. Burkhard Schuchmmann fell in love with the wines in 2008 and brought investment to grow the brand and winery.

This extraordinary white wine goes through fermentation in large clay jar buried in the ground, called Qvevri. Maceration with skins, seeds, and stems is allowed for 6 months before racking.
