look at this crazy label!!!!

WHOA! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ How have we not delved into the beautiful maze that is Georgia and its wines?! ๐Ÿ™€โญ๏ธ We don't know, but we saw this at the LCBO for $14 and were so intrigued by its terrible label we couldn't not buy it!! ๐ŸŒ›๐Ÿ‡โœจIt is actually super easy and delicious! Now: all the things! ๐ŸŒšโœจโšก๏ธGeorgia is one of the oldest wine regions in the world. They discovered wine over 8000 years ago when some crazy person (our great^++ aunt?!?!) discovered that wild grape juice when left buried through the winter in a shallow pit became super good and made you a bit funny! WHAT! Tell us more about this pit!! These wine pits were so deeply pleasing (lol sorry) the Georgians became obsessed with perfecting this buried wine technique eventually using badass clay jars (KVEVRI) they dug up up-to 50 years later. Whoa!!!

magical!!!

magical!!!

All that to say, Georgia = badass history. This wine is made in Kaketi, one of the country's most famous regions sandwiched ๐Ÿ” between Russia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ and Azerbaijan ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฟ. Trying to learn about the production of this wine was p. crazy! United Stars has a deeply terrible website you should check out!!! Its aim is to unite STARS in its portfolio: exceptional, niche and rare alcoholic beverages from around the world. CUTE! Koncho winery "makes popularization of Georgian wine all over the world. Welcome! The truth is in our wine! Taste and get acquainted with Georgian charm!" ๐Ÿ™‚๐ŸŒฑ We totally agree New Friends. This wine is made from the Saperavi grape ๐Ÿ‡, which literally translates to "paint dye". It is one of the world's rare grapes that has dark skin and dark juice! Most dark skinned grapes have clear juice! Saperavi is a grape you only really find in Georgia that is full of natural acidity and charm. This one has piles of stewed and tart, candied red fruit, dusty saddle (meow) and pure anise. It is full bodied for a cool March night (๐Ÿ˜) with surprisingly chalky tobacco tannins that pleasingly scrape your tongue with flavour. We are enjoying it on its own, but would recommend with anything big flavoured or a tomato based pasta sauce (give us some). Pick this up!!! It's so ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Œ
