Pheasant's Tears

There are many who view the wines of Pheasant’s Tears as the very finest in the whole of (the Republic of) Georgia, and after tasting them for myself on a recent trip there I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree. American Winemaker John Wurdeman’s take on the centuries-old winemaking techniques that were developed in this country are a delight for all of the senses.

After a late dinner and an enormous tasting/drinking we took John aside for a chat about what brought him from the US to Georgia, why he started making wine there, and his personal thoughts on the Natural Wine movement.
