    Winemaker Notes

    Initially, you will notice the same fragrant, aromatic array found in mulberry, cherry and blackberry with overtones of wild violet flowers. 

    Distinct for its deep, midnight purple color and crimson highlight, the taste on the palate is smooth and silky, with layers of black fruit that will evolve with age. The finish is bright and memorable, as pure as the famous garden where it was first discovered.

    Lost Eden, The Republic of Georgia
    Lost Eden Winery Video

    The Country of Georgia is regarded as the birthplace of wine. Winemaking is a countrywide endeavor in this lush, green garden nation nestled between the Black Sea and Caucasus Mountains, bordering with Russia. And yet, this garden of Eden has remained a mystery to most of the wine drinking world… until now.

    Enter Lost Eden, an exquisite red blend created to showcase Georgia’s unique winemaking traditions while conquering the hearts of US consumers. Partnering with Georgia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Levan Gachechiladze, who leveraged the fall of the Soviet Union to establish a successful Georgian wine joint venture with the drinks giant Pernod Ricard, Lado Uzunashvili, an 11th generation prominent Georgian winemaker, and Tariel Chichua, a young and motivated Cornell MBA graduate launched Lost Eden in the US to forever pivot Georgia’s winemaking industry towards the West. Vinification: Made with the traditional Saperavi grape, the fruit is crushed, de-stemmed and transferred into separate vats.

    Throughout fermentation it is handled gently to ensure soft extraction to retain the suppleness and smoothness of the finished wine. The fermentation is stopped early to retain some natural residual sweetness – at an optimal level – for the final style requirements. The most authentic part of the blend comes from the wine that is made in traditional Georgian Qvevris (pronounced que-v-ree), which is added to the main blend towards the end of fermentation. The two unique components marry in harmony until bottling. Georgia has a documented tradition of winemaking, dating back 8,000 years. Wine is an intimate endeavor at the heart of Georgia’s history, deeply intertwined with religion, family traditions, hospitality, and everyday life. However, 70 years of forced dependence on the Soviet economy led to more than 60% of Georgian wine being exported to Russia, giving the Russians considerable economic power over Georgia’s wine industry. With the launch of Lost Eden in the United States, the stage is set for Georgia to ease themselves from this heavy economic grip.

    The Country of Georgia

    View all products

    A Eurasian country bordered by Russia to its north, Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan to its south and the Black Sea along its western border, The Country of Georgia is one of the world’s oldest winemaking countries. Archaeological evidence in the Caucasas region (the area covered by the countries listed above, where the European and Asian continents merge) shows wine production dating back 6,000 to 8,000 years ago but exactly which country can lay claim to the birthplace of winemaking remains undetermined.

    Though some modern movements have been made, Georgia remains committed to ancient winemaking techniques, namely the use of qvevri, or clay vessels for fermentation and storage of both its red and white wines. Like ampohorae, these are typically buried underground or set into the floor of a cellar in an effort to regulate temperature. Saperavi, one of the few red-fleshed, dark-skinned varieties, produces an intense red wine. Rkatsiteli, Georgia’s key pale-skinned variety, is popular for its versatility. It is capable of producing wines of various styles from fresh, dry whites and complex, amber-colored skin-contact wine, to sparkling, sweet and fortified wines.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
