STORY

Wine factory Alazani is located in the Kardenakhi Village in Georgia’s Kakheti region. The history of the factory originates from the 19th century, but modern building was constructed in the seventies of the 20th century, when it represented the largest wine enterprise in Georgia. In 2016-2017, the factory was equipped with the modern equipment of Italian brand Della Toffola.

The company decided to produce a high quality wine by merging the Georgian and European methods, producing a wide variety of wine according to the geographic origin, table wine, as well as wines aged in Qvevri and oak barrels. More than twenty types of wine are produced only from Georgian grape varietals, which are mainly sourced from the farmers that support development of small-scale viticulture. For premium class wines, picked up a bunch of grapes are carefully stored in wooden boxes and are additionally sorted out on a special table in the factory, afterwards they are moved to pressure machine and production process starts. Dry wines of premium class are aged in the French oak barrels, which are called "Tonnellerie de Jarnac", this gives wine more soft, aromatic and gentle tones.

The company produces from their own 1 ha vineyard as well as 30 ha contractors’ vineyard, while purchasing grapes from other local winemakers. Currently Alazani produces up to 600,000 bottles annually, and the factory itself has 2,000,000 bottle production capacity.
