Ducal Cellar

Our cellar house with tasting room, surrounded with beautiful vineyards, reflects both – traditional and modern architecture. The central part of our winery is more than a century old wine cellar. We recently upgraded the space and built a new cellar and other premises around the existing one. It comprises rooms with wooden barrels, concrete egg containers and Georgian vessels made of clay – qvevris. Since we age our sparkling wines on lees in bottles for at least two years, the cellar also boasts a special place intended for ageing our bubbles.

Interior

The modern interior shows a touch of tradition with carefully selected details. The materials of the old house, combined with contemporary pieces intertwine throughout the interior, thus creating a warm and welcoming tasting room atmosphere for our guests.

100 years old cellar

In the old part of the cellar, built a century ago, our wines are vinified and and aged in wooden barrels of various sizes.

Wines from amphoras

Some wines are obtained according to thousands of years old Georgian method in so called qvevries (clay amphoras) buried in the soil. In qvevries vine grape must ferments into wine, together with skins and everything else that grape berries hold. We leave the wine in contact with skins for eight months. After that we press and move wine to large wooden casks where they age for next two to three of years before bottling.
