About Amiran Vepkhvadze Favorite Grape

Amiran Vepkhvadze Favorite Grape is 100% Krakhuna macerated for 3 months and sees 6 months additional time in kvevri. A heady textured amber wine with great freshness and carefully moderated structure. Burnt pineapple, beeswax, coconut, unusual flavors for any wine. This is the character of Krakhuna interacting with the microorganisms in the kvevri to give something special, unique to Amiran’s cellar.

About Amiran Vepkhvadze’s Wine Cellar

Amiran Vepkhvadze’s Wine Cellar is located in the Imiretian village of Zestafoni in West Georgia. An attorney by trade, Amiran Vepkhvadze inherited a few hectares of Otskhanuri Sapere, a rare, indigenous varietal found only in Western Georgia. It was planted by his father and the vines are pergola trained in order to counter the humid conditions characteristic of the region. For years he sold the grapes to a large local winery. What they would pay gradually decreased until Amiran decided to start making his own wine. It remains one of the largest contiguous plots of the grape variety.

His vines are planted in fields near his home as well as in the nearby villages of Kinoti and Kldeeti: he grows white grapes Tsitska, Tsolikouri, Krakhuna, and the black grape Otskhanuri Sapere. Fermentation and aging of organically-farmed grapes occur in beeswax-lined kvevri. The wines receive no filtration or chemical additions.
