The Gotsadze family wine tradition dates from the great grandfather of the current winemaker, Konstantin Gotsadze (1860-1940). He started making wine in his cellars in the village of Tskhratskharo, in Zestafoni district of Western Georgia. In the early 20th century the family moved to the capital, Tbilisi, and continued making traditional wines. The current cellars are in Kiketi, 1300 mt above sea level, in the very place where historical tradition says the Georgian Kings had their favourite wines vinified. This wine is 100% Tsolikouri - the most widely planted white grape of western Georgia - and native to the region. It has a relatively short (by Georgian standards) maceration of 14 days. It then spends 15 months in Qvevri - large, traditional amphora.
