1. Georgia is considered the birthplace of wine as the researchers traced the world's first known wine creation back to the South Caucasus people in 6,000 BC.
2. Georgia has over 500 native grape varieties that grow nowhere else in the world.
3. Georgian traditional winemaking technology is unique in the world, for it is based on the use of the Qvevri - large terracotta pots, initially used for the fermentation and maturation of wine but gradually forgotten everywhere, except in Georgia.
4. Another ancient practice of winemaking used in Georgia is skin contact when the grape skins are not removed, as in typical red wine production, and are kept in contact with the juice for days or even months depending on the region.
5. The result of skin contact is the unique color, texture, and flavor of Georgian white wine, also called amber wine and is particularly appealing to natural wine lovers.
