At the foot of the picturesque Caucasus Mountains, you can find the modern wineries of Tbilvino company, surrounded by its own vineyards. Under this brand name, wine has been produced since 1962, but over the years, the company has been modernized, and now, it creates wines that have gained the highest world’s awards. These wines are born in a beautiful, fertile, and hospitable land, a visit to which will turn into one of the most vivid impressions in your life.
Wineries and terroirs

In the unique microzones of Mukuzani and Kindzmarauli, the company’s vine growers are growing rare Georgian varieties: Kisi, Khikhvi, Aleksandrouli, Mujuretuli, as well as the popular Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, and Saperavi. In 2022, Tbilvino plans to expand planting of vines: 50 hectares of land in the Tsinandali microzone will be planted with Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane varieties.
Traditional methods and contemporary approaches
The production is based on a combination of European technologies and ancient Georgian traditions, including those applied for the aging process.
