10 Best Georgian Wines of autumn
Autumn is the time of one of the main wine events – grape harvest and during this period, in Georgia as well as in the whole world, wine tasting, talking about wine and discussions are most active. In autumn there is a diversity of fruit and culinary masterpieces too and it is impossible not to use this season of the year for tasting some best wines. Moreover, in the autumn the previous year's wines are usually ready and perfect.

We
present to you the best wines we've chosen from ALLWINE.GE store, which will make this beautiful, active and important period of the year more interesting to you. In the selection we paid less attention to the prices of wine samples and regional eclecticity. In other cases, we have taken the quality of the samples of the wine as a key piece of our advice. Numbering of samples is obviously conditional.

1. If you love red dry wine, you will definitely like Chateau Ateni’s red dry Tavkveri of 2016 harvest from Kartli region. The choice of the Tavkveri is not so wide on the Georgian market and this quality wine illustrates that winemaking in Kartli is gradually going forward. This wine perfectly pairs with beef barbecue and kupati fried on a pan. You can purchase Chateau Ateni’s Tavkveri at our wine store for 34.60 GEL.

2. The lovers of rare wines are recommended to try the 2015 Budeshiseburi Saperavi from the Liquid Sun company. About 10 years ago, very few people knew about the existence of this grape variety and bottling it was not even considered. Today, as you can see, this wine has become a part of the Georgian wine assortment. You can buy it for 20.50 GEL and if you are about to taste it for the first time, eat fatty dishes a bit later, in order to better understand the taste of the wine.

3 A 2013 Saperavi produced by Zangaura company and aged in oak barrels is worth 35.50 GEL, but the quality of this wine really justifies the price. It is distinguished by the mix of wild berries, cherry and black peaches with plum flavor. In addition to the pork barbecue, this win also pairs well with goat cheese.

4. Last year's Kartli Chinuri from Shatrovani is quite affordable (9.90 GEL). This wine is made by European technology and of grapes grown in the Kartli region. The classic Chinuri is characterized by greenish beige color that goes into golden at times. Its aroma includes fruit tones and is perfectly suited to white meat and seafood.
