The word «Inavarde»

Inavarde is one of these wonderful Georgian words that have no equivalent in English. It means something like «Be free like a bird» or «Let yourself go and enjoy it to the fullest». There is nothing we love more than this feeling. That’s why we do everything to make sure you can enjoy it too: when you visit us in Georgia or just when you enjoy a glass of our wine wherever you are.

Saperavi

Saperavi is a dark-skinned, pink-fleshed grape variety originally from the Georgian Republic.

Saperavi vines are grown widely throughout the Caucasus (the crossover between the Asian and European continents), and further afield in various regions of the former Soviet Republic. Capable of bringing intense color and marked acidity to wines, Saperavi is an ideal ingredient for cheaper blended wines. In recent decades, it has also proved itself capable of producing age-worthy (often barrel matured) varietal wines of high quality.

In Georgia, Saperavi’s best expression comes from its premier region Kakheti, near the eastern border with Azerbaijan.

Kisi

Kisi is one of the indigenous grape varieties in Kakheti, Eastern Georgia. Notwithstanding the high quality of wine it can produce, it became almost extinct by the 2000s, a result of the Soviet preference for Rkatsiteli and the decline of Georgian vineyard land following the Soviet collapse.

Kisi typically ripens in the last 2 weeks of September and is made both in the European and Georgian manner. A straw-colored wine when produced in the European style, the nose is quite floral with flavors of pear, citrus, and green tea on the palate; the amber Qvevri wines reveal more apricot, mango, lime, orange, and walnut character.

White wine

Rkatsiteli

The typical Rkatsiteli wine is best described as restrained and refreshing, with crisp green-apple flavors and hints of quince and white peach. It might be compared to good-quality Petit Chablis, or perhaps Pinot Grigio from northern Italy.

Recently, it has been employed with great success in orange wines, where the grapes are left to macerate on their skins for longer, giving more complexity and texture to the wine.

White wine

Khikhvi

Khikhvi is a white grape variety grown in the Georgian Republic, especially in the region of Kakheti. Here it is regarded as one of the top three varieties along with Rkatsiteli and Mtsvani. It can be used for a wide range of wine styles.

As of 2004, there was only a single hectare of Khikhvi recorded in the entire country. Plantings have increased considerably since the mid-2010s, and the variety is gaining in popularity among both winemakers and consumers.

“Conventional” dry wines are aromatic and floral. The grape can also be used for very traditional, high-quality wines made in Kvevri, with ripe fresh fruit and dried fruit aromas. Some producers feel that the wines benefit from up to five years of maturation before release.
