Kvevri (Georgian: ქვევრი) are large earthenware vessels used for the fermentation, storage and ageing of traditional Georgian wine. Resembling large, egg-shaped amphorae without handles, they are either buried below ground or set into the floors of large wine cellars. Kvevris vary in size: volumes range from 20 litres to around 10,000; 800 is typical.
Alex Shchebet got a chance to photograph kvevri masters during his travel around Georgia.

This small community of 200 is the highest continuously inhabited village in Europe, where ancient traditions continues to flourish. Ushguli is one of those places that is straight out of a storybook – it seems to be paused in time.
