[About the wine].
Ripe. It has a complex bouquet of fruit, apricot, pear and quince, with hints of honey and dried nuts, soft and savory, rich in tannins, and a well-balanced body. It is a wine that pairs well with grilled pork, steak, poultry, and cheese.
In Georgia, earthenware vessels containing Rukatsiteli seeds dating back to 3000 BC have been found. Lukaziteli was popular even before the collapse of the Soviet Union, and at one time accounted for over 18% of all Soviet wine production. There, it is used to make everything from table wine to liqueurs to fortified wines like sherry, and was probably the most widely planted white wine grape in the world before President Gorbachev's vine withdrawal program.
The history of Lucazitelli cultivation dates back to 3000 BC.

In the Chonaz Marani vineyard, the vintage begins at the end of September. Before the start of the vintage, the ripeness of the grapes is checked and the best time for harvesting is chosen. The harvested grapes are transported from the vineyard to the cellar, where they are then pressed into kvevri using a special machine. Once fermentation is complete, the vats are closed and covered with sand from the ground or river until spring.
during the first ten days of April, we open the vats, taste the wine, and do a secondary analysis in the laboratory. At that time, we separate the chacha (grape skins and stems) from the wine and transfer the wine to a new, clean vat, where the wine is allowed to age naturally before bottling. The winemaking process is traditionally accompanied by Georgian polyphonic singing, which is an integral part of the family and is accompanied by wine tasting. Wine making is an integral part of family life. Winemaking is deeply rooted in family life.
