Our family has been making wine for generations, and throughout this time the word Kapistoni has had a special meaning thanks to our grandfather, who routinely labeled outstanding wines as Kapistoni.
This term became ingrained in our family's vocabulary, echoing his sentiment.
Today we remain dedicated to crafting wines that live up to the high standards he set.
We firmly hold that preserving tradition is paramount in safeguarding the distinctive essence of Georgian wines. This characteristic quality arises from the harmonious interplay between the qvevri's singular environment for wine aging and the exclusive cultivation of indigenous grapes. Coupled with minimal intervention throughout the fermentation and aging stages, the resultant product consistently aligns with the discerning standards of a Kapistoni wine.
Adherence to Tradition
In recent years, Georgian wine has gained significant global recognition, captivating a broader audience of wine enthusiasts. This surge has also fostered a valuable exchange of ideas between Georgian winemakers and their European counterparts. Consequently, many Georgian vintners have incorporated Western winemaking techniques in an endeavor to harmonize the flavor profile of Georgian wine with European preferences.
While not an extensively growing movement, we have deliberately chosen to produce wines that remain faithful to the authentic, artisanal essence of Georgian winemaking.
We firmly believe that the finest Georgian wines are those that stay true to the character that endeared them to a worldwide audience.
Our wines stand as a testament to this enduring commitment and embody our sincere interpretation of what exceptional Kapistoni wines should exemplify.
