KTW’s signature wine “Chkhaveri” dates back 1880 to the village Askana, where wine-maker Antimoz Chkhaidze founded one of the most prominent wine-cellars of that period. He used unique grapes to that region and made a brand new wine type. He named it: “Chkhaveri”. Ever since, wine-making has always been a vital family tradition for Chkhaidze family, with Zurab Chkhaidze, Antimoz Chkhaidze’s great great grandson, finally deciding to open and showcase Chkhaidze family wine-making traditions to the world.
