According to folklore, the qvevri must be opened before water can appear in the tree. Levan Jorjadze in his book "Viticulture and Wine Making, Producing and Improving for Leadership" (1876 edition, p. 111), "Wine transfer after March 1 is not good for wine. "Ilia Chavchavadze notes in his essays "Georgian Wine Production" (Tbilisi (Georgia) March 13) that pomace and lees clarify the wine. Winemaker who keeps the wine on pomace and lee for a long time, prefers to wait, he will not exceed February and March to decant wine from qvevri. Based on the knowledge of the current physico-chemical processes during the aging of wine, by leaving wine on the hard parts of grapes and sediment for a long time creates a risk of developing hydrogen sulfide, mercaptan fault(odor of eggs, rotten onions, garlic, burnt gum and gas). Also, if the wine is transferred at a temperature of more than 20 ° C, the risk of oxidation of the wine increases by one or two. According to the regulatory documentation of the field, the qvevri wine must be fermented and aged in the qvevri at least until December 31st of the year of its pressing. Some wines of the protected appellation of origin remain in the qvevri on the chacha until February 1st.
So, before March 1st, transfer the wines, open the qvevris and present the new wine glass bottles with a temporary label for the tasting.
