Chateau Mere opened in September 2011 in Vardisubani Roseville, near Telavi. It partners with Winiveria, one of Georgia’s first agrotourism companies. The winery prides itself on its production of authentic Georgian wines produced with traditional qvevri methods dating back over 8,000 years. The winery seeks to continue the revival of the natural wine movement in Georgia.

Adjacent to the Lagodekhi Nature Preserve, Vardisubani Village is nestled between mountain tributaries in the Alazani River watershed. Chateau Mere lies in the Tsinandali microzone where several rare indigenous grape varietals thrive in Kakheti’s fertile climate.

The wine company “Winiveria” was established in 2008 with focus on producing the high-quality wine. For this purpose, the local farm economies which possess a minimum 20 years of age vineyards were incorporated in the wine company “Winiveria”, which correspondingly led to a limited output.

Winiveria wines are produced in traditional Kakhetian technique, squeezed in pitcher, where it is boiled down and then 6-7 months maceration (Chacha detaining). After this period, the wine is a crystal transparent and stable, there is no need for any treatment and filtration, and is distinguished with tones of dry fruit, nuts, tobacco and newly peeled wood.
