Viticulture and winemaking in the Kevkhishvili family has a multi-generational tradition, each year they used to produce from 3000 to a maximum of 5000 bottles a year.
After 1991 the founder of Kakhuri Gvinis Marani Mr. Giorgi Kevkhishvili started reclaiming the family owned vineyards that were confiscated from his ancestors by the Soviet authorities in 1920s. In 2005 the company built a new winery in Gurjaani in the center of Kakheti. Mr. Giorgi Kevkhishvili, today and his son Mr. Nugzar Kevkhishvili cultivate 500 hectares of their own vineyards in beautiful Kakheti.
Today, Kakhuri Gvinis Marani combines modern cutting-edge technologies with 8000 years of wine-making traditions, love and passion instilled and passed down through generations of winemakers to produce wine with character and quality.
Here is the proof:
Hundreds of medals in competitions all around the world.
Due to the poor quality of the harvest, in 2016 the Kevkhishvili family decided to use all the grapes from the harvest for resale or to distill them to brandy spirits.
There was not a single wine from the Kakheti region in 2016 because it was considered not to be worthy of a vineyard and of Kakhuri Gvinis Marani’s quality. A decision was made that was obviously extremely expensive.
It’s hard not to respect such an approach.
