About this product

  • Askaneli

    The name “Askaneli” is associated with the small, magical village of Askana, located in the beautiful region of Guria, where the old cellar, built by their ancestor – Antimoz Chkhaidze still stands. Antimoz and his whole family was in love with vine and the divine fluid obtained from the grapes. They made their wine according to the old Georgian method, indigenously in clay vessels - called Qvevri. All members of the family were involved in this activity, especially the grandchildren who hosted guests with clay Jugs and little terracotta cups. Antimoz Chkhaidze's cellar and several pitchers dating back to 1880 are still preserved in the village of Askana.

  • Kakheti Region

    In the eastern part of Georgia, nestled in the foothills of the Caucasus, lies the Kakheti region; a particularly dry area of Georgia with dark-coloured red-ish iron rich soil where location and climatic conditions play an essential role in the terroir. Vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of 250-800 meters above sea level, with either humid subtropical or continental climates dominating local microclimates. The combination of dry air from the Caspian Sea coupled with moist air masses drifting in from the Black Sea and cool downdrafts sliding off the mountains creates a unique oenological landscape like no other.
