Established in 2015, Marani Sanavardo prides in making wines using the traditional Georgian winemaking methods dating back thousands of years, producing wine in qvevri. Currently, Marani Sanavardo produced the following three wines: Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, and Saperavi Reserve.

 The winery Marani Sanavardo was founded by emigrant Avtandil Antadze. Avtandil, as a one of the biggest patriots of his homeland, never forgot about the place of his sweet childhood memories during his emigration, the village of Sanavardo. As a wine enthusiastic, he decided to plant Saperavi and Rkatsiteli vineyards in 2002. The important factor that the climate of Sanavardo village and other natural environmental conditions are ideal for getting the best harvest of Saperavi and Rkatsiteli. When he got the first crop and the grapes turned into wine with the old Kakhetian technology, this fact prompted Avtandil to introduce his very first wine to his friends, relatives and big circle of acquaintances. At that moment everyone loved it. This encouraged him to begin the construction of a wine cellar, which would host all those interested in Georgian wine enthusiasts or ordinary tourists.

 He decided to make the wine in a clay vessel, called Qvevri, which goes 15 meters underground to provide better temperature for fermentation. While the excavation of the foundation, in the middle of the vineyards, Avtandil and his winemakers found the clay jar, that was a sign that the place of the cellar had been properly selected. And, of course, in the Qvevri, the best harvest of Saperavi and Rkatsiteli turned into the greatest wine.

Mariam’s interest for wine started when she was working for a tourism company called Living Roots. Her work involved traveling all around Georgia visiting natural wine cellars and gaining knowledge from the producers themselves. During that time she also worked at the newly opened Gvino Underground, the first natural wine bar in Tbilisi, together with Ramaz Nikoladze, John Wurdeman, and Niki Antadze (all natural winemakers). The passion and inspiration from these people inspired Mariam herself to dream about one day making her own wine.

In 2014 she had the opportunity to make her first vintage in her uncle’s wine cellar using one of his Qvevris. Since then she has been producing wine with the single red grape variety Tavkveri. The grapes are grown in the village of Ateni situated centrally in the Shida Kartli region of eastern Georgia.
The harvest is usually from the middle to the end of October, after which the grapes are transported to the winery in Kiketi south of Tbilisi. All of Mariam’s three vintages have had 2,5-3 days of skin maceration, which is very little compared to Georgian tradition; afterward the skins are separated from the juice and kept in Qvevri for about 8 months.
