The history of Chelti Winery began a century ago.
In the Shilda village, the ancestors of the Mirianashvili family built the first cellar in the household vineyards and expanded winemaking.
Since then, the family tradition has not broken. In 2001, Giorgi Mirianashvili built a company and vineyards in this place. Total space of 80 hectares now includes a vineyard, a traditional and classic cellar, an underground wine warehouse, and a touristic complex.
Vineyards and industry combined in one area allow Winery to control the process of picking and crushing grapes.
The factory owns modern equipment, as well as a quality amount of traditional Qvevri.
The underground wine warehouse locates in the cellars of Chelti at a depth of 7 meters. Throughout the year, this underground depth naturally maintains a temperature of 14-17 ° C, which is the ideal heat for storing and aging wine.
Winery Chelti adds thousands of bottles to the cellar each year. Underground bottle warehouse of Chelti ages up to 150,000 premium bottles of wine.
Today the Chelti Winery brand is well known in about 20 countries: America, England, China, Taiwan, Kazakhstan, Japan, Russia, Belarus, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Belgium, Denmark, Ukraine.
