65-70% of Georgian vineyards are gathered in the ancient and unique region for viticulture and wine-making - in Kakheti. The mountain Tsiv-Gombori divides Kakheti region into two parts - inner and outer Kakheti. The Inner Kakheti is located along the gorge of the river ALazani, whereas the outer Kakheti lays along the gorge of the river Iori. The harvests of these two areas greatly differ from each other most probably due to the different climate conditions.
Our vineyards are set from 600 to 700 m. altitude from the sea level, where the soil is rich of humus and carbonates. The annual sum of active temperature totals 3000-3500 degrees.
