Tamuna Bidzinashvili formed her winery Kortavebis Marani in 2014. She planted 2.5 ha in Kakheti and started making wine with negocian grapes while waiting for the vineyard to grow. Now 60% of the grapes used are from the Kortavebis Marani property, there are 35 indigenous grape varietals growing as a kind of library. The wines are made in the traditional Georgian way, aged in qveri.
A short amount of time on the skins makes this Saperavi much lighter than typically made with the varietal. Fresh and delicious with some tannic grip. Organic
