We are pleased to be able to offer the utterly wonderful and absolutely legendary Pheasants Tears wines from Georgia. Georgia has one of the oldest wine cultures in the world and is known for their wine fermented in quervi. Only 60 bottles of each of these wines made it into New Zealand and we got 6 bottles of each. Because of this we are currently offering these as a pack of six bottles, one of each of the 2016 wines. 

"Georgian winery Pheasant’s Tears was founded in 2007 by John Wurdeman and Gela Patalishvili. John is an American painter who first came to Georgia in 1996, and the following year bought a house in Sighnaghi. In 1998 he relocated to Georgia full time. Gela is a winegrower whose family’s connection with wine goes back eight generations. The two met in 2005 when John was painting in a vineyard, and decided to work together.  All wines are fermented in qvevri, traditional clay amphorae, which are lined with beeswax and sunk into the ground. Natural yeast fermentations are employed. Slightly different techniques are used to make each of the wines. Some have moderate skin contact, others have minimal (3 weeks to 6 months). Stems are included. It’s all decided by taste. John notes that qvevri wines seem to age faster than conventional wines. The name ‘pheasant’s tears’ refers to a Georgian story in which only the very best wines are good enough to make a pheasant cry. Not sure what they are doing giving wine to pheasants…" wineanorak.com
