  • A grower of organically farmed grapes in both Karti and Kakheti, Alapiani's Marani's piercingly blue-eyed winemaker, Merab Mirtskhulava, ferments their Rkatsiteli in Unesco-protected, earthenware qvevri, skins-on, and bottles their orange wine without fining or filtration. Bottlerocker Aimée thinks of qvevri as "cocoons that allow you to drink the butterfly." Gaumarjos!
