Terra-cotta clay vessels, called Amphorae or Qvervri, date back to ancient times. They were the original containers used by the Greeks and Romans to age and store wine. Working with amphorae requires a slow and patient approach to winemaking. It’s a labor of love. All work is done by hand from first fill to last empty. It is very much about allowing the wine to speak for itself. The winemaking approach is extremely unobtrusive, letting the wine naturally go through fermentation.
