If this is your first sparkling wine from Georgia, it’s your lucky day! You’ve stumbled across one of the finest of the genre from Ori Marani, an incredible natural wine project focusing on traditional-method sparkling wines. The name means “two wineries,” a play on their use of both classically Georgian qvevri (clay amphora pots) & classically French oak – . . .

If this is your first sparkling wine from Georgia, it’s your lucky day! You’ve stumbled across one of the finest of the genre from Ori Marani, an incredible natural wine project focusing on traditional-method sparkling wines. The name means “two wineries,” a play on their use of both classically Georgian qvevri (clay amphora pots) & classically French oak – the frisson of these two historic wine dynasties is what makes these wines so compelling. Made in the same style year-to-year with a “reserve perpetuelle” of wine stored in qvevri, Nino has a very classic-elsewhere quality with an undeniable beauty that’s an easily-learnt (and taught!) appreciation. Fermented with wild yeasts in 70-30 old French oak and qvevri, the wine was bottled and rested for 15 months with minimal sulphur and no fining or filtration. Fresh and clear-eyed like a spotless sky with notes of pine nut, bruised apple, cornbread, tree resin and a creamy whiff of savoury eggy bread like the extra-Georgian speciality, khachapuri. There’s even a stylistic nod in that fresh, salty-savoury crispness to Nova Scotia’s Benjamin Bridge, where winemaker Bastien Warskotte worked at for some time, plus a literal nod to Bastien’s wife, Nino. An everyday beauty that just happens to be an exceptional treasure for everyone to enjoy.

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.
