Wine was born in clay. For thousands of years before folks in Gaul started floating oak barrels downriver, amphorae or dolia or tinajas or qvevri were where wine fermented, aged, and traveled. Clay vessels are our earliest evidence of winemaking. Clay bowls were even what you drank out of. And today, both in its ancestral territories and in places where it was never tradition, clay is making a comeback. We'll explore clay's impact on wine, its variations and permutations from Imereti to Itata, and drink wine that calls back to wine's very origins.
