Tabla Nova (Telavi Old Cellar)
In 2011, Archili Utiashvili–a seasoned winemaker and viticulturist–founded Telavi Old Cellar. His wines come from the finest grapes grown in his 40-year old vineyard; this degree of age gives the grapes a special taste. Quality control is high at Telavi Old Cellar: wine goes into hand-made bottles, grapes are grown using biologically and ecologically clean methods and facilities, and fermentation revolves around chacha.
Each year, they craft 2,500 bottles of Rkatsiteli and 2,500 bottles of Saperavi.
Village Telavi, Telavi Municipality, Region Kakheti, Georgia
The winery is located on the foothills of the Tsiv-Gombori Range at 500–800 m above sea level, with the vineyards in the Tsinandali micro-zone of Kakheti. Kakheti is famous for its history of wine production and its fertile climate for harvesting and cultivating several rare grape varietals. The Alazani River Valley and Caucasus Mountains stretch to the north.
