Dilao wines are produced by Orgo, a small winery located in Eastern Georgia in the Kakheti growing region that specializes in the 8,000 year old Georgian Qvevri winemaking tradition. All of their grapes are sourced from vines that are at least 50-years-old, which is rare for Georgia considering most vines were eradicated during the soviet era. The winery is a project between famous Georgian winemaker Gogi Dikishivili and his son, Temur. Temur’s youth and Gogi’s expertise create a dynamic of preserving ancient technique and skill while adding more modern twists to keep things interesting and fresh. This spicy, smokey, and fruit forward expression is a perfect fall red option. Reminiscent of both zinfandel and syrah, it is as aromatic as it is fleshy and textural, without racking up the ABV or heat. Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
