The oldest known production of sparkling wine dates back to 1531 in France. The wine produced using this ancient method is called Pétillant Naturel Pét-Nat. In Georgia, the wine produced by this method is called "Machari". Made from the Kisi grape variety, this Pet Nat was obtained by bottling and packaging unfermented wine to complete bottle fermentation.
Unlike the traditional "champagne method", the wine is not decanted or disgorged. The wine has a cloudy appearance due to sediment deposits and contains natural residues. This highly sparkling wine expresses a rich aroma of pears, citrus and tropical fruits. With a pleasant yeast aftertaste on the palate.
