The Pheasant’s Tear’s estate in Kakheti is run by John Wurdeman and Gela Patalishvili. John is an American painter who first came to Georgia in 1996, and the following year bought a house in Sighnaghi. In 1998 he relocated to Georgia full time. Gela is a winegrower whose family’s connection with wine goes back eight generations. The two met in 2005 when John was painting in a vineyard, and decided to work together. “Pheasant’s Tears was born out of a love of authentic tradition, and culture and endless creativity. It is more than a winery it’s about songs, cuisine, art, heritage tangible and intangible. For wine is born out of a confluence of the spirit of a place, its geology, its history, and the emotions of the vintner himself. In the end dialogue between nature and man, a fine tension between respect for the past and creating a new experience for tomorrow. Traditions here are seen as the nourishing soul for improvisation and respectful evolution.”
If l never drank another wine for the rest of my life and only drank Pheasant’s Tears, I would be happy. It’s almost indescribable..soft and fruity, earthy and warm, notes of blackberry. Nothing I can say does it justice. We were speechless. We bought a mixed case of my own selections, having read the descriptions of each, and this one outshone everything else we picked. I just want to get my hands on an unending supply.
