This topic returns by popular demand in a webinar that explores in more depth the history, production, usage and renaissance of qvevri winemaking across Georgia. These traditional clay vessels have been used in Georgia since 6,000BC to ferment, mature and store wines of diverse styles. Despite the rapid increase in interest in qvevri winemaking, the science, art and nuanced practice of qvevri winemaking is still misunderstood. Qvevri solve a lot of winemaking problems, but their effective use demands close attention, relentless hygiene and patient commitment from the winemaker. This theoretical webinar seeks to bust a few myths and explain the value and appeal of making qvevri.

INFORMATION:

The webinar has been developed for those working in the wine and hospitality trades, media and wine education, with a particular focus on the UK market. But all are welcome.
