Sesikeli Winery produces wine by an ancient 8000-year-old Georgian traditional method of winemaking, where the wine is naturally fermented and aged in the large clay vessels called “Qvevri”. Qvevri are buried underground which gives the wine unique taste and flavor. The process lasts 6-month and during this time grape’s skin contacts and filtrates naturally in Qvevri. After that the wine gets amber (orange) color and tannins for the company’s Rkatsiteli.

Sesikeli produces wine with the methods their family ancestors were using to produce wine in cellars in Telavi and Village Shalauri before the Soviet occupation. Their hand-made natural wine is high quality and is produced in limited quantity because the quality is their main goal, as well as to proudly present Georgia’s 8000 years ancient Qvevri winemaking method to the world.
