A very special Orange Wine from the birthplace of skin contact wines. Rkatsiteli is a clean, yet concentrated amber wine made from 100% Rkatsiteli grapes. A weighty wine with a complex expression of perfumed stone fruits, tempered by earthy tones of almond, truffle, and hay. 6 months of skin contact in Qvevri lends a tannic structure, more often associated with red wine production.
Orgo is a small family-owned winery in Kakheti AOC in eastern Georgia. They produce high-quality wines made in traditional qvevri vessels (clay amphora) for vinification and maturation. The winery is run by Temuri Dakishvili, the Dakishvili family’s fourth-generation winemaker. His father, Gogi, is credited as one of the most skilled and influential winemakers in Georgia.
