Château Mukhrani #124
Château Mukhrani - an iconic part of Georgian history
Château Mukhrani represents an iconic part of Georgian history, featuring as an ancestral home of Price Ivane Mukhranbatoni, a renowned member of the Georgian Royal family Bagrationi. Built in the XIX century, the palace and surrounding gardens were designed by French architects. The construction of the palace took 12 years to complete. Both the palace and grounds captured visitor’s attention. It became a cultural and political center for the Georgian and foreign elite, a focal point of European and International influence. Prince Ivane Mukhranbatoni hosted many guests, including public figures, writers, poets, and artists.
Dynamic wine and hospitality business
Château Mukhrani’s mission is to develop a dynamic wine and hospitality business on the foundation of the Georgian Royal family estate, a center of history, winemaking and culture. Our company strives to warrant the highest standards of execution of all our products and services, extending the gracious and royal hospitality along with our core values – Nobility, Excellence and Authenticity to each employee, guest and customer.
Organic viticulture – is the philosophy to reveal the true potential of the terroir. The exclusion of herbicides, toxic insecticides, synthetic fertilizers, and systemic pesticides, contributes to recreating “alive” vineyards and allows us to express the original and authentic personality of soil and the grapes that are growing on it. Therefore, we consider organic viticulture as one of our key quality drivers and we believe it is the future to keep our products and nature safe. 100% of our vineyards are under organic viticulture and certified by the international organic label of CAUCASUS-CERT.
Château Mukhrani is located in the beautiful village Mukhrani 35 minutes drive from the capital Tbilisi.

At the old state of the Royal Princes of Mukhranbatoni …
The state of Mukhrani belongs, since 1512, to the princes of the Bagrationi Royal Family of the Kingdom of Kartli (Eastern Georgia). But it was only in 1876, when Prince Ivane Mukhranbatoni returned from a visit to the wineries of Bordeaux and Champagne, in France, that he decided to cultivate grapes and produce wines in his family state. The beautiful “Château Mukhrani” dates from 1885 and was designed by French architects. For the gardens, Prince Ivane Mukhranbatoni brought a gardener from the “Palais de Versailles”! Amazing history! Today, the “Château Mukhrani” is managed by a private company and produces some of the world acclaimed Georgian wines. The property welcomes visitors for typical Georgian lunches (served in nice tents) and for wine tasting. The “Château Mukhrani”, as of September 2019, was closed and under restoration, but the underground cellars, with more than 20 compartments, were already restored and opened for visitors! I strongly recommend a visit to “Château de Mukhrani” and to the world of Georgian fine cuisine and winery! Bon Appétit! Enjoy!
Amazing reinterpreted Georgian cuisine in and breathtaking location
Returning to Tbilisi from our one day trip to Gori and Jvari, our driver proposed that we eat and taste Georgian wine at Chateau Mukhrani. It was an exquisite experience. The food was worthy of a Michelin star and the wines amazing.The castle is in the renovation process and we had our lunch in a big wedding tent where the cuisine is also organized. For us, the best white wines were the Edition limitee Rkatsiteli and the Qvevri. The red local Shavkapito was also good.
