Bakurtsikheli Estate, nestled in the picturesque Kakheti region, is a family-owned winery with a deep-rooted commitment to crafting exceptional natural wines. Their winemaking process is characterized by meticulous attention to detail, where grapes are hand-cleaned, handpicked, and transformed into exquisite organic wines. This charming estate, situated on a hillside overlooking the awe-inspiring Caucasus Mountain range in Bakurtsikhe, has been in the Beridze Family for generations. Ivane, the current owner, spent his childhood summers here with his family, forging a strong connection to the land. The tradition of winemaking and grape cultivation has been an integral part of the Beridze Family's history. In the late 19th century, their great-grandfather, Alexis Photsitashvili, was a thriving wine merchant who transported wine using traditional buffalo skin carts known as "Uremi" from Kaheti to Tbilisi. During the Soviet era, Ivane's grandfather, Vano Potsitashvili, and his wife were esteemed academics who taught viniculture and viticulture at the Technical University of Bakurtsikhe. Tamara Potsitashvili, Vano's wife, was a chemist and worked in the university laboratory.
