Description of the artwork «Rtveli»

Rtveli

You can talk endlessly about this grape harvest festival, because the culture of Georgian winemaking is rightly considered the oldest on earth and is confirmed by archaeological finds dating back to the 9th — 10th centuries. BC, that is, long before ancient Greek. As for the most popular grape variety in Georgia - “Saperavi”, it is not just an endemic Georgian variety, but also a first-class vine. Therefore, pouring a jug of wine from this grape variety, you can be sure that the same wine was drunk by people who lived on this blessed land almost 30 thousand years ago, and the traditions of its production have changed little and are carefully preserved.
The secrets of the mastery of natural winemaking are handed down from generation to generation of excellent workers, so that once a year, on the uniquely colorful and tasty days of Rtveli, they all gather at the table and once again thank the sky, the earth, the Sun, their families and friends for simple human happiness given by god.
Come to Rtveli in any wine-growing region of Georgia and see for yourself. The truth is, it is likely that already on this day you will begin to learn Georgian, and the next time you will ask where it is better to buy a house. This is normal. This is Georgia.
