Winery Notes:
Our wines represent our home and mostly ourselves. The followed philoposophy is very simple, producing wines based on our taste in order to even present them to others, mostly focusing the attention on nature, vineyards and soil. All types of wine age in French barrels for at least a year, followed by months of ageing in bottles, where the wine elaborate its taste. The specialty of our estate and for those searching for something unique is Amfora, wine made in Qvevri. It originates in Georgia, the cradle of viticulture. The winery was four times selected among top 100 wineries in the world by the elite American Magazine, Wine & Spirits, confirming our passion to winemaking.
