Founded in 2007 a joint project between John Wurdeman and Gela Patalishvili Pheasant’s Tear’s was set up to revive the ancient traditions of Georgian winemaking. The vineyard plantings flow down the slopes of the eastern Georgian Kiziqi province overlooking the Alazani Valley and snow-capped Caucasus Mountains. The Pheasant’s Tears' principal site is located near the village of Tibaani in the shadow of the 6th-century Monastery of St. Stephen. Pheasant’s Tears owns several vineyards spread over several villages - there are 15 ha currently under vine, plus various others in the process of being planted. In Tibaani, John and Gela are dedicating vineyards to rare white varietals.

A really floral Rkatsiteli. Orange in colour, dense and cloudy, aromas of tangerine and passionfruit, texture and spice from skin contact and lees-ageing.
