Rkatsiteli, meaning red horn in Georgian, is one of the world’s oldest grape varieties. It originates from the Kakheti region in Georgia.
We cultivate our vines ourselves in order to be sure to have the highest quality grapes. Our vineyards are fully organic, as we neither use herbicides and pesticides nor any other chemical substances.
We use spontaneous fermentation by natural yeast species and natural filtration. No clarification, no fining, no addition of sulfites.
The wine was produced according to the traditional Kakhetian method using Kvevris (clay amphora buried in the ground) for both fermentation and maturing. The wine was filtered naturally and stored in a stainless steel barrel before bottling.
This dry amber wine has high acidity and comes with a high variety of flora flavors such as resin, lime, pineapple, tarragon, and fennel.
Our Rkatsiteli is quite versatile: It pairs well with fish, poultry, and oysters, but also with spicy meat, lentils, and beans.
