Adjarian Wine House
Adjarian Wine House is a small winery, located in one of the historical regions of Georgia, Adjara mountains, 20 km from Batumi.
The wine house was established in 2010 on the ruins of 18-th century historical winery, in Khelvachauri municipality, village Adjaristskali. New owners restored local historical winemaking traditions and re-introduced some old, unique wines such as “Chkhaveri” - characteristic to this region.
Nowadays "Adjarian Wine House" has their own vineyards and two factories to produce traditional wine with high standards, a Georgian restaurant with an elegant setting for private events, enotheque, wine cellar with Qvevri, and wine tasting halls. A narrow pond filled with an assortment of large fish makes the site even more attractive to the visitors.
Adjara winery produces European-style wines, qvevri wines, a variety of Chacha and Cognac, champagne aged in the bottle and specializes in wines made from Chkhaveri. The European-style wine is a blend of Rkatsiteli and Tsolikouri. Qvevri-made wine is produced with the Tsolikouri grape variety. Currently, the winery is producing 8,000 bottles.
