Pheasant's tears is a very famous natural wine producer from Georgia, based in the Kakheti wine region.

All of Pheasant’s Tears's wine  are fermented and aged in qvevri*, a unique Georgian vessel used to ferment and store wine. 

This Tsolikouri comes from the town of Vani in Imereti in central/west Georgia, near the historical capital of Colchis (the name of the ancient kingdom). It is the lightest and most citrus of the PT wines, and has no skin contact.

*Qvevri were the first vessels ever to be used for wine fermentation, with archaeological finds dating back to 6000 BC. Qvevriare clay vessels lined with beeswax and completely buried under the ground where the temperature stays eventhoughout the year, allowing the wines to ferment in the natural coolness of the earth. 

In accordance with Georgian traditional winemaking methods, the ripest of stems are added to the grape skins, juice and pits, for both our reds and our whites.  The maceration time depends on varietal and the size of the qvevri and varies between 3 weeks and 6 months.

Several of our 2009 varietals are being bottled for the first time in over a hundred years. Let Pheasant’s Tears introduce you to ancient varietals made in the vibrant Georgian tradition.
