Saperavi red wine is one of the most outstanding wines in Georgia. The wine got its name directly from the Saperavi grape variety, which is its basis. Saperavi means paint, which confirms a key characteristic of both grape varieties and wines.
Kakheti is the most important Georgian winemaking region. The vineyards giving the best quality wines are located in the Alazani and Iori basins, at 400-700 m asl, on humus-carbonate, black and alluvial soils.
Georgia’s easternmost region of Kakheti is a land of hospitable, open hearted and straightforward people who live surrounded by rugged mountains, ancient castles, magnificent churches, and drink wine to praise the almighty for each harvest of their nurtured grape yards.
Its still not really sure which people or tribe discovered the great invention of wine. However the oldest civilization that is known for its wine drinking were not the Romans or the ancient Greeks, but the Georgians.
