Orange wines/Qvevri wines-A Kvevri is a large earthenware vessel used for the fermentation, storage and ageing processes for traditional Georgian wine.
An ancient wine vessel found in Georgian territory around Mt. Khrami and believed to date back to the 6 – 7th millennia B.C. is thought to be the earliest example of a Kvevris, it was even decorated with bunches of grapes.
From the 3rd century B.C. onwards, the bottom of the Kvevris became progressively more pinched in Georgia, so that they could bear the weight of the earth around them. Presumably, the practice of burying Kvevris up to their necks began in this period. In 2013, the traditional Georgian qvevri (kvevri) wine-making method was recognised by UNESCO as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
