The National Wine Agency (the NWA) was asked to register the "Khashmi Saperavi" last year via an application from the National Intellectual Property Center. "Sakpatenti", was preceded by the joint work of the NWA and the LEPL Agricultural Research Center for the purpose of preparing the relevant manufacturing specification and other required documents for registration.

“Khashmi Saperavi” – a red dry wine from the Khashmi micro-district located in Sagarejo municipality. The geographical region of the Khashmimicro zone, has a dry subtropical climate and characteristics. The Saperavi varieties of grape provide a special quality to the “Khashmi Saperavi” wine.

According to historical sources, the original cultivation of vine yards in the Khashmi area was associated with Queen Tamar, who allegedly ordered the vineyards to be set up there. The locals quickly learned how to take care of the vineyards and the rules of wine making from which they produce high quality wine using the Saperavi varieties of grapes.

The NWA continues to work with Sakpatenti within the regulation of the provisions of the Appellation of Geographical Indications in addition to adding new wines to the current list.
