Most Georgian Amber wines are made using the traditional qvevri method, lending them complex aromas and a rich texture. They’re perfect for adventurous palates and pair excellently with a variety of cuisines, making them a must-try for wine enthusiasts. Try these Georgian amber wines with flavourful and robust vegetarian dishes such as grilled aubergine with spicy chickpeas and walnut sauce.
