Our Name & The Special Vessel

"Ghvino" (pronounced 'guh-vee-no') is Georgian for wine. Using the Georgian alphabet, the word looks like this: ღვინო. Our logo () is the 1st letter, pronounced 'guh'.

The Vessel shown here is a Qvevri (pronounced "kway-vree"), a unique, distinctly shaped clay vessel used in Georgia for over 8000 years to make wine. The qvevri is buried in the ground where cool and stable temperature allows fermentation and aging to be carefully managed according to centuries old tried-and-true techniques.
