Chelti Winery

Georgian wine from the Chelti Winery has been named among the Best 30 Wines in the World at Europe’s largest wine exhibition ProWein 2019, which took place in Germany this year. The cellar presented five different wines at the event, succeeded in the highest nomination and won five golden medals. Andria Mirianashvili, the General Manager, notes the Grand Gold, awarded to the ‘Saperavi Qvevri Reserve 2015’, was the most significant prize. Chelti also saw success at the International Food and Drink Exhibition – Foodex Japan 2019. Of the 14 Georgian wine companies present at the event, all four of Chelti’s presented wines were awarded golden medals.


There’s something new and tasty on the Georgian sweets market: Batona, which is a brand offering a variety of Gozinaki (chopped nuts boiled in honey). Nana Lekveishvili, the author of the idea, wants to remove the ‘seasonal’ label from the product. Production started in November and has passed official inspections. The assortment of products includes traditional Gozinaki and a type dipped in Belgian chocolate, while Christmas jams are among the upcoming plans. At the first stage, the products will be presented on the local market, with export planned for future.


Lopota Lake Resort and Spa is to welcome guests with its own wine. ‘Buera’ is the name of the new Georgian wine, as is the rare grape variety from which it is made using European and traditional methods. Currently, you can only taste it at the resort’s Chateau Buera, but it is set for wider release soon. And it is not the only novelty of Lopota Lake Resort and Spa, as two new locales have been launched on the site: the first floor of Chateau Buera features a restaurant, while a bar and meeting room are located on the second floor. Guests can also enjoy wine tours.
