Georgia is passionate about wine, and our winemaking traditions are handed down father to son. The unique qvevri method of winemaking (fermentation in clay jars buried in the earth) was recognized as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2013. Sazano Wine Cellar was founded in 2017 with the purpose of restoring the 200-year-old Chanturidze family tradition of winemaking. It is located on the family estate beside the river Dzusa, in the village of Sazano in the region of Imereti. Sazano Wine Cellar currently owns three hectares of vines and plans to expand to ten by 2021.
Sazano Wine Cellar offers exclusive wines produced from the rare and unique grape varieties native to the region, such as Krakhuna, Tsitska, Tsolikouri, Otskhanuri Sapere, Aladasturi, etc. Our wine is fermented and matured in qvevri in the traditional Imeretian method.
