Racha differs from Georgia’s other regions for its unique vines and rich, interesting wines. The vineyards are spread across limited territory but the variety is impressive. There are known to be 59 Rachan vine sorts. The art of viniculture and winemaking were passed down from generation to generation. They say a Rachan can hear the breath of the vineyard and can speak with the vine as if it were a person. Even today in daily conversation, compliments are often sent to a family’s vineyard as well as to the family members.
