Georgia’s ancient wine culture destroyed by the Ottomans
Samtskhe-Javakheti was a key winemaking region in Georgia until invading Ottoman Turks destroyed the region’s ancient, terraced vineyards in the 16th century.
Now, locals are trying to restore terraced vineyards once again in the craggy hills of Samtskhe-Javakheti to replant indigenous grapes and revive winemaking in the region for the first time in 400 years.
