Thomas Huber


In his “day-job”, George Wolski (his son is Andria Gvino) is a PhD engineer, traveling all over Europe as a consultant. But like virtually every Georgian, he’s got vines and wine-making in his family!

The Andria Saperavi is about as “natural” as wine can be - organically grown from 45 year-old un-grafted vines, hand-harvested, de-stemmed by hand, fermented in underground amphora (called Qvevri in Georgia), bottled un-fined, and unfiltered.

And there are no sulfites added at any time in the vinification, aging, or bottling.

The soil composition in Kakheti is referred to as “Cinnamonic” and is comprised of reddish, sandy, calcareous clays. The hue is a function of high iron content which also imparts a depth of flavor and rustic, earthy notes to the wines of this region.
