A Georgian and a German friend founded Martali Gvino out of a desire to produce authentic and pure wines and revitalize the natural wine market. Additional ‘qvevrebi’ wines were added to those made by their forefathers in the 19th century wine cellar, and thus their wine-making process began. The wines are made in the rich traditions of Kakhetian winemaking, using only the qvevri method with organic processes.
Saperavi grapes are grown in the famous ‘Papris Mindori’ microzone in a neighboring village overlooking the picturesque Alazani valley, on the slopes of the Tsiv-Gombori range in a hot climate with little to no precipitation during the summer months. Rkatsiteli grapes are grown in rocky riverside soil, and all vineyards are currently undergoing transition towards certified bio-production under the supervision of the ‘CaucasCert’ company.
