Gogita's Tsitska is made in a village called Terjola in western Georgia. The 2016 is a traditional qvevri wine made with minimal skin-contact - a style that produces lighter wines with paler hues common in western Georgia. The bright aromas of lemon, salty melon and pear offer a cheerful, warm weather vibe. Supple flavors of peach skins and orchard fruits are braced by lemon zest and delicate saline minerals on the finish. Try this at your next fish fry with trout and garnish with citrus and pomegranate sauce for a Georgian-inspired supra! Amanda Bowman
100% Tavkveri from the formidable Mariam Iosebidze in the village of Kartli in eastern Georgia. The Tavkveri is macerated on the skins for two days and then half the skins are removed; the total fermentation is for 30 days in traditional qvevri. The 2016 is darker in color and intensity than past vintages; in some ways this tonal change fits the new bottling which now features a neck label that reads: "I am from Georgia and 30% of my county is occupied by Russia." In the glass the robe is a cloudy rosewood with heady aromas of strawberry, sandalwood, white pepper, salt and bay leaves. After decanting, the wine shows flavors of orange citrus, incense, rose, and tangy strawberry with vigorous acidity. Serve with a slight chill. Amanda Bowman
