History



The wine company Royal Khvanchkara was founded in 2015. The history of Khvanchkara wine began centuries ago. The oldest methods of Rachan winemaking were perfected in the 19th century with the help of Rachian nobles Dimitri and Luarsab Kipiani, which is how the well-known Kipiani Wine was created, nowadays known as Khvanchkara.

The main challenge for the Royal Khvanchkara wine company was the revival of the rich culture of Rachan winemaking and the preservation of the knowledge and experience which had been gained throughout the years. The company now honorably continues that unique tradition. Vineyards planted on carefully selected land plots and thoroughly cared for, sophisticated technology and professionalism contribute to the secret of Royal Khvanchkara’s soft and velvety wine.

The vineyards of Royal Khvanchkara boast 18 hectares in five Rachan villages: Sadmeli`s Chala, Qoveli, Tola, Zhoshkha and Chkvishi. The locations of the vineyards are ideal for the ancient local grapes – Aleksandrouli, Mujuretuli, Usakhelauri and Tsolikouri.

The vine grown on the right bank of the Rioni River on the south-west slopes, at 780-800 meters above sea level, give the harvest highest quality.
