Our wine prices reflect taxes and fees inflicted on us by the PLCB, which are substantially more damaging than any neighboring state's policies—it's our intention to price everything as affordably as we can within this system. PLCB sucks.

Dato's Wine

43

Dato’s Wine is the name of David and Tariel Kobidzes’ Family Cellars. The family vineyards are located in Guria, in the village of Erketi, Chokhatauri municipality. The local climate, the fertile soil, the grape varieties, and the ancient tradition of winemaking allow the production of natural wines made from unique local grape varieties. They have a rare vineyard with 40-year old Aladasturi vines.

Dato’s Wine (Kobidzeebis Family Cellar) is located in the Guria region in western Georgia, where the humidity from the nearby Black Sea meets the mountainous air from the Caucasus to create a fertile winemaking climate. The winery rests in the mountains just south of the Supsa River, which flows into the Black Sea.

My family wine cellar and my 150 years old vineyard are located in the village of Erketi, in the western Georgian region of Guria. I make all my wines by hand in Qvevri, large clay jars buried underground, in an 8,000 year old style. I work to preserve unique varieties from Guria that almost went extinct during Soviet rule. My production is small but rich just like my beautiful Guria.

Jani (johnny) and Skhilatubani (skee-lot-oo-bah-nee) are two nearly extinct indigenous Guria red varietals. This is a field blend from our nursery vineyard with a production of 300 bottles. Each bottle was prepared in qvevri and bottled with love. A lovely ruby color, berry fruits and medium tannin are combined in this rare bottle.
