About the Winery

Vazisubani Estate dates back to the 19th century and traces from one of Georgia’s most storied and cherished family lines, Chavchavadze. The Estate has been meticulously restored over the last decade, emerging as a premier wine-tourism destination built around the palace, gardens, winery, marani (wine cellar) and 35 hectares of estate vineyards.

Winemaker Notes

Under management of one of Georgia’s premier wine makers, Kisi fruit is picked in early morning and brought to the winery where bunches are transferred into qvevri for fermentation according to traditional methods on skins for 6 months using natural native yeast giving rich amber color, depth and classic Georgian character.
