Co-Own a vineyard in the birthplace of wine
The ancient traditional method of wine making using Qvevri dates back to the 6th millennium B.C. and is inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The Qvevri is an egg-shaped earthenware vessel used for making, ageing and storing the wine. Knowledge and experience of Qvevri manufacture and wine-making are passed down by families, neighbours, friends and relatives, all of whom join in communal harvesting and wine-making activities. Children learn how to tend the vines, press grapes, ferment wine, collect clay and make and fire Qvevris through observing their elders. The wine-making process involves pressing the grapes and then pouring the juice, grape skins, stalks and pips into the Qvevri, which is sealed and buried in the ground so that the wine can ferment for five to six months before being drunk.
As the member of GNCC you will have exclusive possibility to become a co-owner of vineyard, acquire your own qvevri, and later, after the fermentation of the wine have your own vintage made of endemic Georgian grapes (Georgia boasts more than 500 varieties of indigenous grapes—nearly one-sixth of the world’s grape varieties).
