Description

Note from the importer: ‘Joni’ Okro is one of the most respected natural winemakers in Kakheti, Eastern Georgia, where he concentrates on traditional long skin contact amber wines and increasingly a small range of delicious pet nats. His Kakhetian wines are sourced from cool high-altitude vineyards instead of the warmer plains his wines retain freshness and vitality and have concentration levels rarely seen. He also works with grapes from Kartli and Imereti. His whites and amber wines are based on local grape varieties such as Rkatsiteli, Kakhuri, Mtsvane and Tsolikouli, which all spend between 1,5 and 6 months in Qvevri The reds, Saperavi and Tavkveri, spend only one month in qvevri. Besides still wine John also produces 5 different Pet Nats and the Georgian grape-liquor called Chacha. John also owns a restaurant in Signagi overlooking the Caucasus mountains, where you can eat Kakhetian food and drink
