Wine Company Twines Wine Cellar in Napareuli was esablished by twin brothers Gia and Gela Gamtkitsulashvilis. Twins Wine Cellar is located in the Village Napareuli, Telavi municipality. Wine making in the company is based on Kakhetian method of wine production and follows family traditions of wine making.
Twin brothers became acquainted with Qvevri (a unique clay Georgian vessel used to ferment and store wine dated back to 8000 BC) wine-making from the very childhood and launched comemrcial wine-making in 1997. In 2002 they restored ancestors cellar and “Zavod”. They grew Rkatsiteli and Saperavi vineyards and expanded their cellar.
At the moment the cellar operates 107 Qvevris most of them having 3.5 – 4.5 tones capacity.
The wine at Twins Wine Cellar is made by Rkatsiteli, Kakhetian Green, Saperavi and Kaberne sorts of grapes harvested from Napareuli micro-zone that gives wine a moderate tannins and an original harmonious taste. Fermentation in Qvevri occurs together with grape pomace (Chacha), which gives wine its color.
After the fermentation the remaining pomace is not extracted from wine, opposite to it is left in the Qvevri for 5 to 6 months to undergo natural filtration. Wine taken from Qvreri in the month of March is distinguished with clearity and aroma. What is most peculiar about Twins Wines is that it is not proceecced chemically after natural filtration that makes Twins Wine an ecologically pure product.
The Company is committed to promote Qvevri wine and strengthen the idea that this type of wine is superior to other types of wines as it is rich in aroma and tannins (that decreases cholesterol level) and does not require chemical preservatives to ensure wine long life and superior tatse.
Visitors of the Cellar have an unique opportunity to see open qvevris and watch exclusively process of wine fermentation and wine-making during twelve months of the year.
