What is Saperavi?
Posted On May 27, 2020
It is a dark skinned red grape that is the specialty varietal from the Republic of Georgia. Grown in the Alazani Valley on the edge of the Caucasus Mountains, archaeologists have found proof that wine has been produced in this region for over 7 millennia. Wine from this grape is also produced in neighboring countries like Armenia, Moldova, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. A very small production is also produced in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
