A family that has been making wine for seven generations, and throughout this time the word Kapistoni has had a special meaning. When a wine was excellent, it was qualified as Kapistoni wine. They have always strived to create wines that could carry such qualifications. Although somewhat abstract and with a precise definition that remained elusive to previous generations of their family, they believe that the source of those qualities is rooted in methods used by Georgians for over 8000 years in which Qvevri plays a central role.
They believe that adhering to tradition is the best way to keep intact the unique character of Georgian wines. This character is born out of the interplay between the unique environment provided by Qvevri for ageing wines and the exclusive use of indigenous grapes. Combined with minimal intervention during the fermentation and ageing process the resulting product meets the qualitative markers of a Kapistoni wine. They believe that the best Georgian wines are the ones that stay true to the character that helped define them to a worldwide audience. Their wines are the result of this ongoing effort, and represent our genuine interpretation of what great Kapistoni wines should be like.
