The history of Georgian winemaking dates back to 7000-8000 BC.

According to legend, St. Nino, Cross Georgians came to Georgia, carrying a cross made of vine, bound by his own hair. So the vine became a symbol of Orthodoxy for Georgians.
The vine is mentioned in the Georgian fairy tales, legends and songs. In the 9th century, even the Academy operated in Georgia, which had a department of winemaking. In the 12th century, the great Georgian poet Shota Rustaveli studied at this academy.
For centuries wine-making was the basis of Georgian agriculture. Now in Georgia there are over 500 names of grapevine.
