Ancestral Wine Cellar
Founded in 2015, Ancestral Wine Cellar has a mini-hotel, ethnographic and wine tasting spaces and verandas overlooking the Alazani valley and the Caucasus. The winery offers winery tours, wine-tastings, an introduction to the Qvevri winemaking techniques; churchkhela making; bread making; participation in a Georgian feast, Supra, accompanied by the Georgian national music with live performances.
The original site of the cellar, Gulashvili’s wine cellar, was founded as old as 1871 which stands as a testament to Georgia’s deeply historical traditions of winemaking in the region. Ancestral Wine Cellar cultivates local grape varietals Khikhvi, Kakhetian Mtsvivana, Kakhetian Mtsvane, Simonaseuli and Danakharu in their vineyards.
