Palavani1 Thumb Qvevri

Region: Kakheti

The history of Palavani wine production begins in 1743, when King Erekle II of Kartli-Kakheti established vineyards in what is now the village of Kistauri. Almost a century later, the vineyards were still popular and run by a descendant of the king, who offered the fruit of Georgian vines to the Major General of the Russian Army, Kiazo Eristavi, in 1888. He loved it so much that he brought it to the Tsar Alexander III, who at that moment rejected all foreign wines, vowing to drink Georgian wine for the rest of his life. Under Sovietization, the vineyards were transferred to state control, due to increased demand for wine, and production was increased in 1954. After the collapse of the USSR, the winery and vineyards were renewed by Anzor Kibrotsashvili, a world-renowned Georgian judoist.
Palavani wines are created using the grapes from their own 120 hectares, in addition to grapes produced by local growers. The winery is equipped with the latest modern technology and is capable of producing 2,500 bottles per hour. In addition to this high-production bottling facility, Palavani hosts a modern laboratory for carrying out a wide range of necessary physical and chemical analyses.
Palavani takes its mission seriously–to meet the demands of the international market–and envisions the promotion and dissemination of Georgian wines across global wine markets. Its current exports are focused in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, China, Hong Kong, and some European nations, though it hopes to continue expanding further.

Sarajishvili1 Thumb Harvest Grapes

Region: Kakheti

Wine production in Georgia was introduced thousands of years ago, but the first Georgian wine brandy connected to David Sarajishvili’s name appears only in the XIX century.
The end of the XIX century is one of the most productive epochs in Georgian history. It is a time of emerging Georgian magazines, newspapers, printing houses, “the Reading and Writing Society,” the first Georgian theater, the national bank and the first Georgian wine brand factory.

The first Georgian wine brand was created thanks to tireless efforts and tremendous desire of David Sarajishvili. He was the one to establish the first classical brandy making technology in Georgia and to produce the cognac. Sarajishvili has not only introduced the European winemaking technologies in Georgia but also conducted a study of the Georgian climate and soil for choosing right Georgian grape species and creating the best micro-zones for making vineyards. Established in 1884, the company produced its first product in 1887.

David Sarajishvili’s work was highly praised internationally in 1889-1912. As a result, Georgian brandy was awarded gold medals at Paris, Brussels, and Chicago exhibitions. In 1913 the company earned the exceptional status: “the provider of Russian Emperors house”.

Due to the incurable illness, David Sarajishvili passed away in 1911. The great producer and philanthropist invested most of his 3-million property in his country. He has financially supported the establishment of “The Reading and Writing Society,” the Kutaisi theater, surgery clinics, schools, academic institutions, and many others.

The company was headed by David Sarajishvili’s wife, Ekaterine Poraqishvili from 1911. She successfully continued her husband’s activity and also added her contribution to the development of cognac production in Georgia.
