Wine is our memory and memory of wine is the history of Georgia told wordlessly; when the country was powerful, wine-making was flourishing - vineyards blossoming, the best wine was being produced, the new species were being evolved, and vice versa - the decline of the country was reflected on the winemaking.
It’s been more than 8000 since the beginning of winemaking culture in Georgia and after that vine and a Georgian man are inseparable/ It’s unimaginable to have a gathering in Georgia without wine, we drink wine in sickness and the health, in better and the worse, we meet a birth of new life with a glass of wine and follow one to its last way with it.
“Alazani” is located at the very special place of Georgian winemaking history - village Kardenakhi. As told, every house/ door had a vine and that’s where the name comes from - “Kari” (door) and “Venakhi” (vine) - “Kardenakhi”.
This factory was named as the largest wine factory around the Caucasus region in 1970.
The company was revived in 2016 - human resources were retrained, new inventories were equipped and new technologies implemented and all these give the possibility to produce wine both in traditional Georgian and modern European technologies.
