Vineyards: these plots, once the core for historically outstanding wines destined to selective palates and producing grapes of the highest qualities, are challenging for unique decisions whilst vinified. The nesting place is Mukuzani – the Red Crown of Georgian wine regions and possibly one of the oldest as well as best wine growing regions in the world. This is the place of the Mukuzani’s Wine Golden Goblet from the II millennium BC.
Mesoclimate: The Mesoclimate of Mukuzani, where the grapes for this truly fine and exquisite wine grow, boasts pristine, almost wild and virgin natural qualities. Though, thousands of years old, the soil, the sun, the varieties, the vignerons have remained nourishing, noble, caring and passionate to deliver wine of such elegance.
Soils: Stony clay at 600 – 650 AMSL, where the best of MUKUZANI has been historically harvested.
Yield: max 5 tons /ha, equivalent to 35 – 37 HL/ha.
Harvest: Harvest day is decided based on grapes fully responding to the final wine style requirements as well as respecting the local traditions as to when grapes for a great wine can be picked – this would correspond to Bio-Dynamic thinking if said in modern language. Georgians called it Rjulis Canoni, i.e. Canonical Way of Living, which greatly applied to wine culture as well. Once decided, grape picking for this wine is somewhat ritualistic and sacred. It ONLY is produced in tiny volumes by sorting each single berry, which would then carefully go for vinification.
