Georgia Wine Bottle Label
The country of Georgia is confusing to many American wine drinkers, because they have a STATE located above Florida which is also named Georgia. The state of Georgia is known for its peaches and golf, but not for its wine. In comparison, the COUNTRY of Georgia gained its independence from Russia in 1991. It is located just to the east of the Black Sea, and it is the northeastern neighbor of Turkey.
Wine making has been a strong tradition in Georgia since before history began. The creation of wine, as well as the mining of precious minerals from their mountains, has founded the backbone of their fame.
Below are images of a traditional ceramic bottle of Georgian sweet red wine. Known as "Khvanchkara" this is a late harvest red made from local Georgian grapes.
