The Chkhaveri grapes are hand-picked, organic, and biodynamic, made and matured in Kvevri (clay vessel) by
traditional Georgian method.
A western Georgian variety, Chkhaveri is mostly planted near the Black Sea coast in Adjara and especially in Guria, but also in Imereti. The origins of its name are obscure, though it is posited that the name refers to physical formation of the vine or its climbing nature. Chkhaveri originally was a maghlari wine, a vine trained to grow up trees. This pinkish-violet variety is rather sensitive to site and its methods of cultivation; especially susceptible to downy mildew, and with very thin skins, it generally needs careful vineyard attention to generate quality fruit. It grows particularly well on cooler, south-facing hillsides with limestone soils; more humid, lower altitude sites present a constant risk of fungal infection. Given the relative warmth of the climate, frost is rarely an issue Chkhaveri is cultivated. The bunches are small and thin, but can be dense with one wing; yields are small. Chkhaveri ripens quite late (in Guria, in the second half of November) and care must be taken to prevent botrytis. It can reach very high sugar levels while retaining fresh, brisk acidity, allowing for remarkable versatility. Alcohol levels are always moderate. Regardless of whether the wine is still or sparkling, dry or semi-sweet, Chkhaveri wines are vibrant pink, fresh flavors of red berries, cherries, forest fruits and baking spices. The naturally semi-sweet rosés, produced anaerobically in tank and intended for early consumption are delightful and refreshing. Produced as a light red in qvevri, the fruits are more subdued but the spiciness offers lift and complexity. As of 2004 there were 20 hectares in production in Guria, particularly in Ozurgeti and Chokhatouri, as well as in Imereti and Adjara.
Guria region is situated in western Georgia, next to The Black Sea. Guria has subtropical climate, the most humid in Georgia.
