Founded in 2010, Iberieli Wine Cellar is a family owned winery, run by Zurab Topuridze. The name Iberieli – which was chosen by Zurab’s children – refers to the ancient people in the Caucasus who made wine several thousand years ago. These people later became Georgians and are believed to be the inventers of Kvevri winemaking.
