Notes from winemaker Max Rose:
This wine is something I’ve been dreaming of making for a long time: New England’s inaugural commercial Qvevri wine. Qvevri are the primordial winemaking vessel. First used by winemakers in Georgia 8,000 years ago, we wanted to honor that history with a name that would evoke the fundamental, ancestral spirit of these amazing vessels. While the biblical story of Eve and the apple is often seen as a misogynist parable, there is a modern Jewish interpretation that reframes Eve’s decision as a necessary, ordained step towards human empowerment, driven by Eve’s unique curiosity and willingness to question. Seemed only right to name New England’s first Qvevri-aged wine after the mythic first woman that brought us out of the garden and gave us the world. Righteous. As this is the first trial with Qvevri, we only filled a single 400L vessel so there’s not much of this to go around but we are immensely pleased with how it turned out. Read more here.
