Natenadze’s Wine Cellar
Natenadze’s Wine Cellar has been proudly restoring the tradition of winemaking in its Meskheti region, where centuries ago the Ottomans destroyed valuable local grape species.
Giorgio Natenadze has been carefully studying and reviving as many as 40 local grape species, making rare wines naturally over a 3-hectare territory. Natenadze’s Wine Cellar uses organic processes, dry-farming all grapes manually with no irrigation used.
