Babunidze Wines was established on 2016 by George Babunidze. George was born in the biggest winemaking region of Georgia - Kakheti, beautiful town Telavi.
First memory about wine George has is from his early childhood -he sneaks into the cellar and looks down the steps, where he sees his grandfather bended on Qvevri, taking out wine with his clay wine-cup. Grandpa notices him and calls him to come closer, gives him the wine-cup and lets him smell it.
Babunidze Wines is the quality one can always rely on. Beautiful label has word Qvevri with old Georgian alphabet as a background and a seal with winery logo from the same type of wax that was used by Georgian kings. Wine in the bottle - always perfect! Just like it should be from the winemaker born in the cradle of wine and gathering experience as a professional in oldest winemaking countries.

Babunidze wines has 12 ha vineyards in Telavi, Kakheti region – 3 ha of Saperavi in village Artana in Napareuli micro zone and rest – Saperavi (5 ha), Rkatsiteli (1 ha), Kisi (1 ha) , Khikhvi (1 ha) in Telavi.
"Artana has different soils and relief. The soils are a non-carbonate alluvial on alluvial and proluvial sediments. They can be loamy or lightly loamy and sandy, ranging from skeletal to heavily skeletal in some places. Artana has some volcanic ash soils intermixed. Earlier sources deemed Artana an area of higher quality than other parts of Napareuli, producing more delicate wines than their gutsier cousins across the river: ‘The reds are moderately extracted, but still intensely colored’;
Telavi is part of the Mestia–Tianeti sub terrane. Its origins lie in the Middle Jurassic period when calcareous sandstone and lime stones were deposited. The lower (earlier) Miocene period contributed various grey calcareous clays, sandstone with quartz fragments, thick, coarse-grained sandstones and micro-conglomerate interlayers with rich micro fauna. The upper (later) Miocene brought more clays, both grey and blue, thick, coarse-grained calcareous sandstone and oolitic lime stones with numerous fauna and conglomerates. The Pliocene brought even more layers of clays and loams."
