Founded in 2007, Pheasant’s Tears was set up to revive the ancient traditions of Georgian winemaking. The vineyard plantings flow down the slopes of the eastern Georgian Kiziqi province overlooking the Alazani Valley and snow-capped Caucasus Mountains. The winery's principal site is located near the village of Tibaani in the shadow of the 6th-century Monastery of St. Stephen.
Tsitska is a native white grape of Georgia's western Imereti region. Manual harvest. Whole-cluster fermentation in Qvevri with indigenous yeast. Aged in qvevri and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This traditionally made qvevri white is medium-bodied, with prolonged skin contact giving tannic structure and aromas. Clean and refreshing, with notes of citrus and apple with invigorating acidity.
