Simon Chkheidze Cellar
Simon Chkheidze’s Wine Cellar is a member of the Natural Wine Association.
Village Obcha, Baghdati Municipality, Region Imereti, Georgia
Simon Chkheidzes vineyards are planted at 220-280 meters above sea level, on southern-facing slopes of alluvial-carbonic soil. Tsolikouri, Tsitska, Krakhuna, Chkhaveri, Aladasturi, and Otskhanuri Sapere grape varieties are grown in the family’s estate. Otskhanuri Sapere grapes are planted in the “Olikhnari” method, where each vine is trained up and attached to a separate wooden post, making the use of metal or wire in the vineyard unnecessary. The winery sits beside the flowing Lukhuta River in the mountainous Imereti region.
