Georgia has 500 grape varieties

Despite being a relatively small country, Georgia consists of many different wine regions with different climate, soils and winemaking traditions. Red wines from Western Georgia tend to be lighter and have usually higher acidity. In Kakheti, Georgia’s wine region number one located in the eastern part of the country, the red wines are heavier and have normally more tannins. From approximately 4,000 grape varieties in the world, more than 500 are Georgian.

About our Georgian red wines

In our vineyard, we cultivate two red wine varieties: Saperavi and Jghia, both typical Kakhetian species. In a few years, we will be able to produce a small amount of Ikaltos Tsiteli and Akhmetis Tsiteli, two very rare varieties we planted in 2023.

Saperavi Georgian red wine grapes

Among the red wine varieties, Saperavi is the most wide-spread one in Georgia. It is predominantly cultivated in the easter Georgian wine region of Kakheti, where several Saperavi-specific microzones (denomination of protected origin) exist. With Inavarde Wines, we are located in one of them: the Kindzmarauli microzone that lies between the Alazani river and the slopes of the Caucasus mountains.

Saperavi is famous for its dark color and comes with aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, dark fruits and plum. It can have earthy and smoky notes, too. We only produce dry and semi-dry Saperavi wines.

Jghia Georgian red wine grape

Jghia is a typical Kakhetian grape variety, too. But compared to Saperavi, it is much less known and today only a few winemakers are producing wine from this species.

Jghia wines have less tannins and are lighter than Saperavi wines. The color of Jghia is lighter, too. Jghia wines typically have flavors of berries and cherries and are quite fruity.

The few Jghia vines we have are 10 years old and allow us to produce not more than 10 bottles per year. The only small chance to taste it: you visit us in Eniseli at the right moment 😉

Our philosophy

We understand wine as a gift from nature, influenced among others by soil, vegetation, sun, precipitation, and wind. These factors interact and create new conditions every year, which are reflected in our wines, as we let nature run its course and intervene only when necessary.

Organic vineyard

Our vineyard is fully organic. Neither do we use herbicides and pesticides nor any other chemical substances. Between the vines, we plant different other plant species such as beans, strawberries or pumkins.

Wild yeasts

Nature creates new conditions every year. This also applies to the wild yeast cultures in the vineyard, which can differ from year to year. We do not use pure culture yeasts, but rely on the wild yeast cultures that give our wines new notes every year.

Careful harvest

It is not only important to choose the right moment in terms of sugar level and weather, but it must also be fast: the grapes must be processed immediately after harvest. We transport them in small wooden crates to avoid damaging the individual berries.

No additives

In our cellar, we don’t add anything to our orange wines, not even sulfites. We use natural filtration by letting the sediments sink down. We don’t consider clearing and fining to be necessary. Our wines are not only natural but also vegan.



The most widespread and well-known Georgian red wine variety is Saperavi. It is domestic to the Eastern Georgian region of Kakheti. From Saperavi grapes, both dry and semi-dry respectively semi-sweet wines can me made.


Dry red Saperavi wines do usually have a dark red color that sometimes looks rather black than red. Saperavi comes with a wide variety of aromas such as blackberry, blackcurrant, dark fruits and plum. Furthermore, Saperavi wines can have pretty smoky and earthy notes, too. Tobacco and chocolate can be discovered as well.


Kindzmarauli is a semi-sweet wine made from the Saperavi grape variety cultivated in the Kindzmarauli microzone, located in the north of Alazani river in Kakheti. Even thouth our Saperavi vines are located in this microzone, we do not produce Kindzmarauli wines, as we don’t like semi-sweet wines.
