Winery "Gvirabi" Tours in Georgia » Group tours » Themed tours » Wine tours
"Wine Culture Cradle”, "Wine Home Country” this way they mention Georgia as the ancient wine making country. A good wine, like a man, has its own home country. It imbibes the aroma of the homeland forever. Georgian wines and strong drinks are unique, and have original features and bouquet.  From scientific aspect Georgia is a country where a man "cultivated and domesticated" wild grape. The found clay jugs with "Rkatsiteli" grape seeds aging more than 8000 years point out to the high level of development of wine-making in Georgia.  
  
Circa 500 wine sorts are cultivated in Georgia (historically, there were more than 3000 sorts earlier) that is 2.5% of the entire world range. In Georgia there are 8 main seats of viticulture: Kakheti - 80 sorts, Kartli - 72 sorts, Imereti - 75 sorts, Racha-Lechkhumi - 50 sorts, Abkhasia - 58 sorts, Adjara - 52 sorts, Guria - 53 sorts, Samegrelo - 60 sorts, etc. 
 
Company producing wines "Winemaking Khareba» is based on the ancient traditions.The company is working to preserve the unique culture of the vine and wine production, according to the old methods, and with the latest technology. Of great importance is the storage of wine. In Kvareli region of Kakheti, in the rocky slope of Caucasus Mountains, at the end of the 50s of the last century was cut through the tunnel, which originally had a military purpose, but with the development of military technology gradually lost its meaning like a fortification and was used as a unique repository of the best wines of Kakheti. It has a natural temperature of 12-14?C throughout the year, ideal for storing and ageing wine.
The tunnel was originally built by the military towards the end of the 1950s. The rapid development of military technology, however, rendered the tunnel’s defensive potential obsolete and it lost its meaning. From that moment on, the tunnel was used to store Kakheti’s finest wines.
  
The complex consists of two main tunnels linked by 13 smaller galleries 500 metres long. The total length of these tunnels is 7.7 kilometres. The tunnels are used for different purposes: one is destined for tourists, whereas large quantities of wine are stored and aged in the other. This is where the Winery Khareba stores around 25,000 bottles of its finest wines.
 
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 revived, 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. Many awards and certificates proved this fact.
 
"It is difficult to find a country where they drink so much and such a good wine”. (words of the famous French traveler Jean Chardin, XVII).
