Kachichi

The red grape variety originates from Georgia. Synonyms are Abkazouri, Abkhazouri, Kachich, Kachichizh, Kachici, Kadzhidzh, Kagigi, Katchitchige, Katchitchij, Katcitci, Kattchitchi and Kattcitchi. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. The first mention was in the 19th century. The vine, which ripens very late, is susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces dark-coloured red wines. The variety is cultivated in small quantities in the northwest of Georgia and in the neighbouring autonomous region of Abkhazia. It is also used as table grape. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
