It’s no understatement that the author, activist and winemaker Keto Ninidze has single-handedly revitalized the small region of Samegrelo, a historic winemaking region in northwest Georgia, largely neglected since the 19th century.

Tsolikouri, Samegrelo, Georgia

It’s no understatement that the author, activist and winemaker Keto Ninidze has single-handedly revitalized the small region of Samegrelo, a historic winemaking region in northwest Georgia, largely neglected since the 19th century. After an onslaught of fungal disease and Soviet occupation had nearly wiped Samegrelo off the map, Keto now leads a new generation of winemakers by working to restore the region’s natural biodiversity, championing local grape varieties and promoting Samegrelo as a wine tourism destination – our hero! This dry ‘amber’ wine was fermented on half of its skins in qvevri - traditional Georgian clay pots - for 7 months, then bottled without fining or filtration in limited quantities – just 900 bottles! Evoking the visceral experience of tearing into the first, ushy-gushy peach of the year in flavour, texture & spirit with notes of tropical fruit cup, fresh tangerine, salted pineapple, Meyer lemon, smoked honey & a whiff of woodsy pine air freshener. Starts out creamy, textural and fleshy, then dramatically crescendos into brisk, refreshing acid balanced by a light, pithy bitterness. All the attitude of Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich, a whip-smart silver-tongued ode to loving thy neighbour. While some qvevri-aged Georgian wines are dense and dominated by savoury tannin, this drinks as the freshest, most beautiful light skin contact. We simply love to see it.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive.
