Welcome to the wonderful world of wines from the country of Georgia!

As the world discovers natural wines, Georgian ancient wine culture is attracting attention. Georgian wines have already become a must-have for the world’s best restaurants and wine merchants in Europe. They are now among the trendiest in the world. Gradually, Georgian wines are becoming more popular in the U.S.

Georgia is the “Cradle of Wine” and is one of the oldest wine regions of the world. In Georgia there is evidence that wine has been made for more than 8,000 years. Georgia has some of the oldest and most distinct grape-growing terroirs on the planet, where they have cultivated not just vines, but a world- class wine culture. Georgia produces wines that are unlike anywhere else. Georgian grapes are unique, indigenous that often cannot be found elsewhere. They present both unique flavors and aromas. Acid is a lot mellower and not as aggressive. Georgia boasts more than 500 varieties of indigenous grapes—nearly one-sixth of the world’s grape varieties—including endangered vines found nowhere else on Earth.

Georgia is a small mountainous country in the area where Europe and Asia meet. Georgia is on the same latitude as Tuscany and has similar territorial conditions perfect for wine production. A rich diversity of soil, climate, the angle at which the sun falls on the vineyards and the many indigenous grape varieties creates a huge variety of wine tastes and aromas. Take advantage and drink these wines. Be adventures with your palate. Drink different. Are you ready for it?

About us

World’s Finest Wines, LLC is an Importer/Wholesaler of Georgian wines. We have created our company with the aim of publicizing delicious, elegant and genuinely unique wines from the country of Georgia. The owners first experienced Georgian wine on a trip to Kyiv in neighboring Ukraine. They fell in love with the richness and depth of taste of Kindzmarauli and Mukuzani. They were so impressed, that when they returned home to North Carolina they embarked on a mission to find these wines in local wine merchants but were unable to find any. So, they set about creating World’s Finest Wines, LLC to bring these amazing wines to North Carolina and share these amazing new wines with the American wine lovers.

Our mission at World’s Finest Wines is to introduce the world’s oldest newest wines to American wine lovers and bring truly old-world flavors to new pallets.

Georgian Winemaking

Nowadays, the process of winemaking in Georgia uses a wide range of techniques—from the traditional Georgian method of fermenting the wine in clay Qvevri’s, to the European process using modern equipment and techniques, like stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. Wine made today in the traditional Georgian method follows the same process Georgians have developed to make wine more than 8,000 years and this process is one of a kind.

Qvevri Wine phenomenon

Traditionally, the classic way of producing Georgian wine involves the country’s signature Qvevri. Before use, the Qvevri’s are carefully cleaned and then coated with beeswax. The process then involves pressing the grapes and then pouring the juice, grape skins, stalks and pips into the Qvevri. Then it is completely sealed to further prevent contamination and oxidation. The natural yeasts of the grapes allow fermentation without additives, and the natural tannins prevent spoilage without artificial preservatives. The vessels’ conical shape allows yeast and sediment to settle to the bottom freely while the wine is allowed to circulate within the wider center. When buried underground, Qvevri maintain the temperature of fermenting wine like modern temperature-controlled tanks do. The taste of Qvevri wines differ from barrel wines in that no oak flavor seeps into the wine.

Georgian Wines

Georgian wine is a source of pride, pleasure, and social status. It gives people a reason to meet and take pleasure in each other’s company. It gives foreign wine lovers a warm welcome to Georgia and a vivid insight into the Georgian culture. Georgia seems inextricably intertwined with wine and seems to be inviting the world to one long table, where everyone can toast each other, trying to live amicably on a shared planet – or terroir! Georgia produces a variety of wines for nearly every palate. Georgian wines are classified as sweet, semi-sweet, semi-dry, dry, fortified and sparkling.

Orange is the new Red

The process of making orange wine is very old, but the re-invigoration of this ancient process has only resurfaced in the past 20 years.

Here are just a few well-known wines you should look for: Mtsvane Qvevri, Kisi, Khikhvi, Saperavi Qvevri.
