Marniskari’s history in the Kakheti region extends as far back to 1875, where the famous Georgian figure Zechariah Jorjadze produced traditional wine from his vineyards in the Eniseli village, and later went on to gain recognition as the first in history to export Georgian wine. Marniskari continues their ancestor’s work and preserves his secrets of winemaking in their fine natural wine.
The company cultivates local grape varietal Saperavi over 40 hectares of territory and Rkatsiteli grapes over 35 hectares, also owning vineyards in various regions across Georgia. Marniskari’s factory processes up to 2,500 tons of grapes and due to their modernized Italian production technology the company can fill up to 3,000 bottles per hour. Marniskari’s wine is in great demand and they export internationally, seeking to continue their growth in domestic and international markets alike.
