Visiting Georgia’s wine regions, pursuing qvevri wines

Jamie Goode visits Georgia for the first time. This is the country that has a strong claim as being the cradle of wine, where grape vines were first domesticated. And through some 8000 years of unbroken wine history, an ancient way of making wine in large clay vessels called qvevri has survived. Goode visits wine cellars where qvevri are still used, and goes to meet a qvevri maker, one of the few keeping this tradition alive. But such is the local and international demand for these vessels, there’s a two year wait should you want to buy one.
