Making natural wine in the ancient viticultural centre of the Caucasus mountains, Pheasant's Tears work with traditional Georgian winemaking techniques and varieties. All wines are fermented and matured in qvevri, a unique Georgian ceramic vessel and one of the first containers ever used for this purpose thousands of years ago. 

Natural Georgian orange wine made from the indigenous Chinuri variety macerated on the skins for 30 days in clay qvevri (amphora) buried underground, followed by a further 10 months ageing in qvevri. Lean, fresh and mineral with touches of pear, green apple and preserved lemon.
