About the Producer
There has been a winery in the village since the 1800s and to ensure that this long history of winemaking continued, Teliani Valley was established in the 1990s by a group of enthusiastic young winemakers. Originally a converted car workshop was their home, but with their tremendous vineyards and skill for making quality wines, they have gone from strength to strength and are now one of the biggest producers in Georgia, with annual production of 5 million bottles.
Although their roots go back years and their connection with traditional winemaking is still strong, Teliani Valley today attracts and supports the most exciting winemakers in Georgia. Their team of innovative winemakers who are given the time, equipment, fruit and support they need to create really exciting modern style wines, and we think that is evident in the selection we have here.
Vineyard and Winery
Made from 100% Asuretuli Shala, a rare grape variety which was discovered growing wild in the woods around Asureti by German settlers in the early 19th Century. This grape is only grown in and around the small village of Asureti which is located in the central Bolnisi region, South East Georgia, where wine has been made since the 6th C BC. The vineyard is 700masl and is made up of clay and limestone soils. Skin contact fermentation takes place for 8-12 day. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished skins are separated from the wine and it continues to mature 10 days in oak barrels and later continues to mature in stainless tank.
