  • ABOUT THE WINERY

    Kakha Tchotiashvili is an artisan winemaker with an established marani in the Kakheti region of eastern Georgia.  He is focused on reviving ancient local varieties, and makes natural wines according to local traditions. His wines are made without any additives or chemicals in the vineyards or wine making. His wines are all produced in Qvevri; buried clay earthenware amphorae. All are fermented with wild yeast and bottled unfiltered.  Kakha is a perfectionist, and he pays special attention to the vines and wines in all stages of vine growing and wine making. This allows him to produce precise and clean flavors from ancient methods. The production is limited, and the winemaker personally inspects each bottle before numbering it and releasing to wine lovers.
