|The Mukhrani estate is renowned for its rich soil and traditional winemaking methods. Ideal soils and climate conditions all play a role in the many varieties of wines produced by the estate. They are true works of art. |
In ancient Greek times, the clever and diligent population of "Geo-rgia", meaning the land of farmers, put these rich natural resources to good use. East Georgia, and in particular the region around Mukhrani, ranked among the most important terroirs, and is even considered to be the cradle of wine growing and winemaking in the world.
The image of Dionysus, in the vicinity of the Mukhrani estate, is a proof of the ancient art of winemaking of the region. According to Hugh Johnson in his book "History of Wine": the Georgian name gvino spread to the whole of Europe and the World and changed to: vino, vin, wein, wine.
When Ivane Mukhranbatoni, of the Bagrationi dynasty, returned from France in 1876, where he learned about the fine art of winemaking in the Bordeaux and Champaign region, he started producing wonderful Georgian wines on the ancestral Mukhrani Estate land. He also introduced contemporary technologies that were already widely used in Europe. The combination of local traditions and new techniques revolutionised the quality of Georgian wine, bringing out all the unrivalled flavours and characters of the local wines.
Chateau Mukhrani has become renowned the world over for its splendid palace and cellars, wonderful gardens, pristine vineyards and farms. The harmonious symbiosis between fertile soils and history, traditions and modern technologies, has created the masterpieces we call Chateau Mukhrani Wines.
