Beka Gotsadze of Gotsa wants people to visit his family winery high up in the hills of the Asureti Valley—4200 feet above sea level— to break bread, drink wine and sing! Asureti is an ancient village in the foothills of Georgia, about 30 minutes away from Tbilisi, reachable by a nearly impassible dirt road. During deep ploughing of the vineyards in 2005 a bronze sword was found dating to around 2000 BC, proving continuous inhabitation of this area for at least 4,000 years. Wine is a family tradition and it is Beka's intention to preserve it. The whole family participates.
Current cellars are in Kiketi, 4200 feet above sea level.
Organic vineyards situated 1800 feet above sea level are located 10km (6.2mi) from the winery, between the Marabda and Asureti villages, in Algeti National Park.
Fifteen different varieties (25,000 vines) of Georgian grapes are planted in the vineyards.
