Giorgi Kipiani is ook zo een echte Georgische avonturier op het gebied van wijnmaken. Opgegroeid in de wijngaard besloot hij in 2014 om wijn te produceren in de qvevri in het gebied Racha. Hij begon in 2014 met 4 qvevris en produceerde 400 flessen wijn, waarvan hij de helft exporteerde naar Japan. Nu, een paar jaar later heeft hij 12 qvevris (enkele meer dan 140 jaar oud) en produceert hij per jaar 3,500 liter wijn.
The words from the producer himself
Giorgi Kipiani -27 years old.
My winery location is in the west part of Georgia, “Racha” region, specifically village “Khvanchkara” which was very famous in the Soviet Union period whith his wines, especially red semi-sweet wine Khvanchkara.
My grandfather was a director of the big factory of Khvanchkara, my father is also winemaker and from childhood I have practice to make wine. But in 2014 I decided to make wine in Kvevri. I know that it will be experiment and for a big chance wine will be bad, but fortunately it was no mistake. When I opened Kvevri which was 56 litre not more, the wine was fantastic…
Why “didgoriwinemaking” ? – “Didgori” is a name of Ensemble which is complected of 15 members and singing traditional Georgian pholiphony singing and Chunt music about 12 years.
