The Khvanchkari winery was established in 1927 by Dimitri Kipiani, now known as Khvanchkara, though the company’s beginnings were far earlier. In the 1880’s, Kipiani, a Georgian noble, began the wine-making process with a semi-sweet red wine, from Alksandrouli and Mujuretuli grape varieties. He entered this wine in a 1907 competition in Osten, Belgium, where it won the Grand Gold Prize.
With the condition of the present market economy, the governmental regulation of Georgian wines and their names, the main goal of Khvanchkari is to expand their famous Khvanchkara wine in the international markets.
Khvanchkara’s wine is bottled in their exclusive black glass, which is produced solely in The Czech Republic. Due to the outstanding design of the bottles, Khvanchkara wine, produced by Khvanchkara Ltd, can be easily distinguished from products of other producers. The wine company is committed to producing the finest quality authentic Georgian wines.
