Drink it now. No need to decant.

Located in the village of Obcha, in the Imereti, on the hills south of Kutaisi, the Baia's Wine farm and agritourism are managed by young Baia Abuladze together with her family. Using minimal intervention in the vineyards and traditional Georgian winemaking methods in the cellar, the winery produces approximately 4,000 bottles a year.

This wine is a blend of two native Imeretian varieties, Tsitska (30%) and Tsolikouri (70%). The grapes are grown, selected, and harvested by hand in the village of Obcha. Spontaneous fermentation is preceded by a period of partial maceration on the skins (30%) in traditional Qvevri. Three months after the end of fermentation, the wine is racked into stainless steel for aging.

The resulting wine is a light and fragrant white with fresh aromas of pear and apple, slightly sweet notes of apricot, and some hints of hazelnut. The grapes of this blend are both characterized by a high degree of acidity and a low degree of sugar; the wine is therefore very fresh, dry, and thirst-quenching with a delicate honey finish. Enjoy it well chilled as an aperitif, or try it with grilled chicken, pork tenderloin served with an apple sauce, or trout.
