Artizani is a small winery established in 2015 by three friends. Translated from French, ‘Artizani’ means master who works with his hands, without using technologies. The main winemaking goal is to produce aromatic wines, rich with fermentation and primary fruit aromas, harmonious, well-balanced, revealing the inherent characteristics of terroir. Wines are made using natural winemaking techniques and wild yeast, without sulfites, and bottled unfiltered. Mainly produced wine, Saperavi, comes from Khashmi, Kakheti.
Every year, the winery tries making wines with different endemic varietals from different terroirs: 2016 welcomed Saperavi Rose, and 2017 welcomed a blend of Mtsvane and Rkatsiteli from Manavi.
Village Khashmi, Sagarejo Municipality, Region Kakheti, Georgia
Artizani is located in the westernmost area of Kakheti in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains, bordering the flowing Iori River. The mountainous climate and river valley soils in Georgia’s historic Kakheti region offer suitable conditions for winemaking and the cultivation of several rare local grape varietals. The winery’s headquarters sit in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, the business and cultural center of the nation.
