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.

Fermentation uses native yeasts and full skin contact is for six months; A unique and historic style with naturally arrested fermentation in qvevri produces special sweet-soft, extended finish, unusual for a qvevri wine.
