Baia Abuladze grows indigenous grapes in the seven acres area without any
fertilizers. The land is located in the village of Obcha, Imereti region (Western Georgia). The young winemaker follows the traditions of picking and pruning grapes passed down to her from the grandfather.

The traditional method employs a “kvevri” to produce wine. Qvevri or Kvevri is a large earthenware vessel used for the fermentation, storage, and aging of traditional Georgian wine.

Abuladze established her own brand Baia’s Wine four years ago. She produces and sells four varieties native to the region in Georgia. The four types of wine are tistska and tsolikouri grapes (white wines), otskhanuri sapere (red wine) and krakhuna blend. The blend is preserved with grape skins for 15 days which give the wine a dark orange color.
