Founded in 2007, Pheasant’s Tears produces artisanal natural wines with ancient Georgian techniques, growing rare endemic grape varieties and harvesting with organic processes. Their name comes from a Georgian tale in which the hero claims that only a wine beyond measure could make a pheasant cry tears of joy, and with family winemakers that have been making wine for 8 generations as well as Georgia’s rich soil, Pheasant’s Tears strives to meet this standard.
They are a member of the Natural Wine Association.
