Georgia itself among 16 Important Names To know In Natural Wine
Georgia is listed among 16 important names to know in the natural wine industry. Among the 16 names, Georgia is the only country, the others are individuals.

"Natural wine" is something of a polarizing term. To purists, it represents the ultimate viticulture pursuit — farming the grapes and fermenting the wine with no outside interference. It is undeniable that natural wines are gaining momentum. In major cities like Paris and New York, wine bars and restaurant wine lists focusing on
natural, biodynamic and organic wines are becoming increasingly prevalent,- Foodrepublic.com reports

Georgian wine and staples

Here is what Food Republic wine writers Chad Walsh and Richard Martin have writen about Georgia:

The Entire Country of Georgia

Although recent discoveries indicate that the oldest known winery was actually in Azerbaijan, Georgia has perhaps the world's longest continuous history of winemaking (much of which would be considered "natural" now, as there is no other option when the stuff is made by individual families with small plots of grapes). Producers in this ex-Soviet Union state are not only reviving old traditions but also incorporating Western European and New World expertise.

The most natural wines are those made in the Kvevri (also Qvevri), very large amphorae often buried into the ground. The grapes, red and white, go in with their skins and all, and fermentation occurs naturally. The results can be varied, and drinkers who turn their nose up at oxidized styles of wine like sherry may not enjoy the strangely colored whites, but the beguiling wildness of the reds doesn’t require any particular palate to appreciate. I might, though, prefer the cleaner expressions of local varieties like Mtsvani and Rkatsiteli, but because of the still-limited access we have to the wines, it’s tough to recommend a specific wine or producer. Keep your eye out and try one if you seen it on a wine list written by someone you like or on the shelf of a store you trust.
