Harvest Details The Saperavi grape is picked by hand.
Production method Georgian Kakhetic Qvevri technique. In this traditional technique, the wine ferments and ages in a large earthenware vessel, the Qvevri, which is entirely buried in soil. The pressed grapes go with stalks, seeds and skin in the Qvevri. The fermentation process takes about 2 weeks, during which the wine is stirred manually three times a day. Afterwards, the wine will remain in the Qvevri after which it will be moved to oak barrels for further aging. The wine is not filtered.
