We
present to you the best wines we've chosen from ALLWINE.GE store, which will make this beautiful, active and important period of the year more interesting to you.

Numbering of samples is obviously conditional.

1. If you love red dry wine, you will definitely like Chateau Ateni’s red dry Tavkveri of 2016 harvest from Kartli region. The choice of the Tavkveri is not so wide on the Georgian market and this quality wine illustrates that winemaking in Kartli is gradually going forward. This wine perfectly pairs with beef barbecue and kupati fried on a pan. You can purchase Chateau Ateni’s Tavkveri at our wine store for 34.60 GEL.

2. The lovers of rare wines are recommended to try the 2015 Budeshiseburi Saperavi from the Liquid Sun company. About 10 years ago, very few people knew about the existence of this grape variety and bottling it was not even considered. Today, as you can see, this wine has become a part of the Georgian wine assortment. You can buy it for 20.50 GEL and if you are about to taste it for the first time, eat fatty dishes a bit later, in order to better understand the taste of the wine.
