Chateau Khashmi family winery is located in the Khashmi village, making four distinctive wines, including: Rkatsiteli, Rkatsiteli Rose, Kisi and Khashmi’s Saperavi. Some fruit is grown at the family vineyard and some is being sourced from several organic vineyards in the region.
During the harvest, the grapes are hand-picked and sorted to prevent any imperfections. The grape juice is not pressed, allowing for the free-run wines to find their way into Qvevri, where the wines ferment and age based on the Georgian traditional method. Wine is bottled without filtration upon maturation.
Currently, Chateau Khashmi has the following wines available: Saperavi (2016, 2017), Kisi (2016, 2017), Rkatsiteli (2016, 2017), Khikhvi 2017, Kakhuri Mtsvane 2017.

Vineyards are located in the Khashmi village, considered as one of the best place to cultivate Saperavi grapes. Only natural rootstock is planted, resulting in low yields, but high-quality grapes depicting the original notes of the Saperavi grape. Organic viticulture methods are used throughout the growing and harvesting seasons.
