GEORGIAN WINERY «INAVARDE»

Inavarde Wines is built on friendship, love for nature, and passion for healthy products. In Georgia’s wine region Kakheti, we produce natural wines from the endemic Georgian grape varieties Saperavi, Kisi, Khikhvi, and Rkatsiteli that we cultivate in our own organic vineyard. We are most happy when we can host guests at our vineyard or in our wine cellar.

Inavarde Wines was founded in 2020 by Fabio Bolognese, a citizen of Switzerland who emigrated to Georgia in 2019.
