If you've happened to fall in love with Georgian wine and you would like to treat yourself to one of the truest expressions - you should definitely give Shota's wines a try. Not for the faint of heart, both his Rkatisteli and Mtsvane see 6 months on skins and a whole year in qvevri. This means lots of structure and complexity, but there is also a gentleness and elegance behind the seemingly thundrous first impression. Shota is just 26 years old, but he cares deeply about the Georgian landscape, traditions and especially the agricultural side of things. He is a firm believer in supporting the young farmers of the country, he is in the process of reviving a very old and rare grape variety, and you might even be so lucky as to have him as a tour guide if for some odd reason you signed up for one of touristy things!
Regardless of all this, drinking the wines from this very young winemaker will likely transport you thousands of years back to the very origin of winemaking as we know it.
