Sazano Wine Cellar
Founded in 2017, Sazano Wine Cellar represents the culmination of six generations of winemaking history for a pioneering family in Georgia’s Imereti wine region. Following traditional Georgian practices, the family produces wines from rare grapes native to the region, including Krakhuna, Tsitska, Tsolikouri, Otskhanuri Sapere, Ojaleshi, and Aladasturi.
The Sazano Wine Cellar ferments its wines from their three hectares of vines in qvevri with partial skin contact as is the Imeretian tradition.
In 2019, the family added a beautiful boutique hotel to their riverside property outside Zestafoni, in the form of a restored, 200-year-old traditional Imeretian house. With the further addition of a restaurant serving local cuisine, they now offer guests a fully immersive experience in eco-cultural tourism.
