Producer Note
Georgia is considered to be the ‘cradle of wine', as 8,000 year-old indigenous Rkatsiteli
grape seeds have been found in clay vessels. Vachnadziani was established in 1953
and is one of the oldest wineries in Georgia. During the Soviet years the vineyard fell into
disrepair, but now the vineyards and cellars have received considerable investment.
The aim is to preserve their ancient wine culture while combining it with cutting edge
technology. With over 1,000 hectares of vineyard, covering the Kakheti region in eastern
Georgia and the Imereti, Racha and Lechkhumi regions in western Georgia,
Vachnadziani cultivates 25 vine varieties - the majority of which are indigenous. Their
exciting and dynamic range reveals all the charm of this historic winemaking land.
The grapes are grown in the Imereti region in western-central Georgia, where the
climate is humid, with hot summers and mild, warm winters. The vineyard is situated at
an altitude of 220 metres above sea level, where the vines are trained according to the
Vertical Shoot Position (VSP) method and are Double Guyot pruned. The soils are
humic-calcareous. The vineyard is planted on slightly inclined slopes, terraces and
plains, all of which are orientated towards the north-west and the west. Cover grass is
planted between the vines to reduce weeds; the soil is mulched and treated with
organic mineral fertilisers. Krakhuna (pronounced Crack-OO-na) is indigenous to Imereti
in western Georgia; it translates as ‘crisp’ in Imeretian dialect.
Cold maceration took place over four hours to extract the delicate aromatics, followed
by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 16°C, lasting two
weeks. The wine was rested on its fine lees for 10 days, imparting texture and
