ABOUT THIS WINE
When trying to explain the unique value of GK Wine, Chris Hall explains, “There's a measurement that wine geeks use called QPR which is quality-price ratio.” A good QPR refers to a wine with a low price point and high quality. “I'll hazard a guess that you'd be hard-pressed to find any wines that are better QPRs than these.” Young says, “This is a bottle of wine that could easily be triple the price based on the winemaker, the fruit sources and the quality of wine put in the bottle.”
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
A wine created for the support of one of Atlanta's best Non-Profit organizations, The Giving Kitchen.
The wine is made by Maayan Koschitzky’s whose primary job is as the Director of Winemaking for Atelier Melka (owned by Philippe Melka), a world-renowned wine consulting firm based out of Napa Valley. In this role, Koschitzky consults on winemaking throughout California and parts of Washington state and internationally in Chile, Canada, Australia and in his native Israel.
Koschitzky was born in Israel to a farming family. He grew up, joined the Israeli army and served as a paratrooper. After his service, he traveled the world and spent a lot of time in Argentina where he says he first fell in love with wine in Mendoza. He returned to Israel to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering, and it was during a project about mechanisms to sort grapes that he fell in love with winemaking and decided to change careers. “I never looked back.” In addition to his work at Atelier Melka, Koschitzky also owns a winery in Israel called Amphorae and a winery in California called La Pelle.
