Georgia – a cradle of wine, the place, where a human grew the grape vine and tasted wine for the first time. During archeological researches in the village “Telavi” 8000 years old grape seeds were found in wine jugs, also ceramic jugs of the same age. This fact shows that winemaking in Georgia is 8000 years old.
To provide a basis Schuchmann acquired 120ha of land of which 60ha are currently under vines. Dark fertile soils offer an excellent basis for viniculture! The oldest vines were planted in 1986.
Two third of the portfolio is represented by Saperavi the leading red variety in Georgia. Deep in color with tannins and dark fruit notes. This grape offers excellent potential to produce great wine.
9 ha belong to Rkatsiteli which represents our main white wine. This variety offers a young, fresh and lively stile of wine.
The portfolio is completed by Chardonnay, Mtsvane, Kisi, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc
