There will be an auction of rare and collectible Georgian natural wines that are not found anywhere else on the market.
John Wurdeman is founder of Georgian wine brand Pheasant's Tears and a well-known advocate of Georgian natural wine and culture. John's friends and colleagues are joining forces to support him, because on December 11th Wurdeman's house in Sighnaghi (Kakheti) was completely destroyed by fire. All his personal possessions and the ethnographic artifacts that he and his wife have been gathering over past 20 years are lost in fire.
The fire also damaged Pheasant's Tears wine cellar ▼Map where John hosted his guests. It was the house where John, born and raised in the U.S., settled in the 90-es.

Just days ago Hvino News wrote about one of Pheasant's Tears wines featured in Bloomberg's top wines list.
Earlier, an emergency crowdfunding campaign in support John Wurdeman was launched, which already raised $23,750 out of $30k needed. All funds will be used by John and Ketevan to rebuild their home.
For everyone interested in helping John Wurdeman and his family to rebuild his home and cellar, here is the link to his crowdfunding page: https://www.gofundme.com/m2ej8rb2.
