Will Georgia revolutionize wine making by their revival of the ancient practice of using clay pots instead of oak barrels?


Georgian wine

Around 50 million bottles of wine are produced annually in Georgia, 40 million of those traditionally being lapped up by Russian drinkers. Vineyards are mostly sited close to the Black Sea, composed of 500 indigenous grape varieties, making Georgia a fascinating repository of vine genealogy. Around 40 varieties are in commercial production. Reds from Saperavi have carved a reputation for making excellent wines, with white varieties like Mtsvane and Rkatsiteli also recognised for their quality. Some estates have invested in more modern technology, whereas others have suffered from a lack of investment in vineyards and wineries. There are also traditional methods of winemaking in many estates, where wine is fermented in clay amphora, buried underground.

I don't know the answer of this question and therefore i like to put the vote Unsure. You have wrote the possible answer of that question which you described here. It's little bit informative for me. Any how, I want auessaywriters.net but this website have good content to  be read having useful messages as well.
