Wine Making in the East:
In Kvareli wine is kept in 7.7 km long tunnel cut off in the stone massif of Caucasian mountain range. The massif includes granite surrounded by shale layers. At any time of the year, the temperature is 10C-11C. Wine is being aged there in the oak barrels.
Grapes are received and processed in Vachnadzeani, which historically is connected to the distinguished noble families – the Jandieri and the Vachnadze. From the 17th century, the Jandiery, as well as the Vachnadze were the famous noble families in the territory of the old Hereti. As a result of the huge contribution and afforts made by the Jandieri, the winery destroyed by enemy invasions, still revived in 1877, which served as the basis for popularization of Georgian wine culture. It’s worth nothing that the winery revived by the Jandieri, has been still functioning through “Khareba”, which is its turn, due to the special technologies of wine making and quality strenghthened its place in the world and at the same time contributed to promotion of the Georgian wine worldwide.
