I am Zhuka (Tako Zhuruli), winemaker. My husband is Sano (Zurab Sanodze) _ here’s a name of our winery: Zhuka-Sano Wine Cellar. This is a small family winery. We have only 0,5 ha organic vineyard, 3 sorts of wines in a very limited quantity _ Rkatsiteli (white, dry, about 300-320 bottles), Rkatsiteli-Mtsvane (white, dry, about 300-320 bottles) and Rkatsiteli-Ikaltos Tsiteli (rose, white, dry, about 400 bottles). Our cellar is situated in the house, which we bought in 2015 along with a small vineyard. In the cellar we found old quevris – large clay vessels berried underground and used for fermentation, storage and aging of vine, the oldest of them from 1907, we restored several quevris, renewed them and now we are making wine in them. Our vineyard is located close to the house; in 5 minutes walking distance. We have the varieties oldest grapes _ Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, Ikaltos tsiteli. We look after grapes only with biological serments and use sulfate with minimal doses according to generally accepted standards of biological farming. The wine we make is natural, organic, without chemical additives and filtration. We do not actually interfere in the fermentation process, we only follow the process and observe cleanliness and hygiene. My husband and I are beginner winemakers; we consider ourselves students of the best georgian winemakers Iago Bitarishvili and Kakha Berishvili. We regularly get updates in the new information and read old publications about winemaking and vineyard. But the more we learn, the little we know.
