Twins Wine Cellar: in the heart of Kakheti
The Twins Wine Cellar is located in Kakheti, Georgia – an area gaining increasing recognition for its growing wine industry and the production of excellent Georgian wines. The region in which the winery is located is called the Napareuli region which is known worldwide as a distinguished wine microzone.
This unique Georgian winery was established by twin brothers Gia and Gela Gamtkitsulashvilis after they renovated their family’s ancient wine cellar
Twins Wine Cellar is considered not only a winery and cellar but also as the wine tourism hub of the area, offering a hotel for those wanting to extend their stays as well as a museum. This museum offers visitors a unique educational and fun experience to learn about the history of winemaking in Georgia and its unique wine-making techniques and traditions, particularly the use of the Qvevri. The Qvevri is a large egg-shaped terracotta clay pot that is used for the fermentation and maturation of wine. They are so large that they cannot be transported and are buried underground.
A wide selection of Avevri wines
The Twins Wine Cellar winery owns two branded stores in Georgia featuring a wide selection of the Qvevri wines produced by the Twin Wine House. To date, the cellar operates 107 qvevris, each with a capacity of 4 tonnes under the wine label Qvevris Mzse. The wines that are available are the Rkatsiteli 2017 (dry white 12%), the Saperavi 2017 (dry red 12.5%), the Kisi 2017 (qvevri dry white 12%), and the Kikhivi 2017 (qvevri dry white 12%).
