At Pheasant’s Tears, we produce artisanal natural wines according to ancient Georgian traditions.
We start by growing Georgian varietals in rare terroir using organic principles to produce luscious, healthy grapes. All our wines are fermented and aged in qvevri, clay vessels lined with organic beeswax and buried in the earth. We ferment using naturally occurring yeasts and painstaking attention to achieve wines of character and sophistication deeply rooted in the richness of the Georgian soil and Georgian culture.
Our name comes from a Georgian tale in which the hero claims that only a wine beyond measure could make a pheasant cry tears of joy. With each bottle that leaves our hands we strive to meet that ancient standard.
