More info

The grapes for this wine come from vineyards in the Vachnadziani subregion of Kakheti, planted on alluvial soils. The grapes were harvested by hand.

After pressing, the wine underwent alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. Once complete, thirty percent of the wine was passed to French oak barrels to age for between one and two months.

Tbilvino

Tbilvino was established nearly sixty years ago, and over this period they have become one of Georgia’s leading producers. Almost dormant at the end of the Soviet era, the winery was acquired by the enterprising Margvelashvili brothers, who set about restoring the facilities, and moving the focus from volume to quality. In the last decade they have made considerable investments, beginning in 2008 with the refurbishment of their original winery in the capital city, Tbilisi. This was followed in 2012 by the construction of a second winery in Kvareli, close to Russia’s southern border, where they produce their qvevri wines. Taking full advantage of the technology at their disposal, they favour a clean, bright style, whilst still employing the traditional production methods and indigenous grape varieties that make Georgian wines so unique.
