Atenuri (or Ateni)
Since the winery’s establishment in 2017, all grapes have been sourced from small family growers who pay a lot of attention to detail. Ori Marani gives priority to vineyards using organic growing and management practices. Grapes come from Shida Kartli, Kakheti and Imereti regions.
The philosophy of Ori Marani is to utilize Georgian and authentic winemaking techniques. Ori Marani means ‘2 wineries,’ in Georgian. This approach is translated into the winemaking techniques as well – the wines undergo fermentation in the Qvevri and aging in old French oak barrels.
Grapes are hand harvested and fermented on their indigenous yeast to preserve terroir identity. The wines are unfined and unfiltered, with a minimal amount of sulphur used before fermentation and at bottling.
