Saperavi Vieilles Vignes is a high quality wine due to the soil and microclimate of its specific area, which is surrounded by the Kavkasioni forests to the north and the Alazani valley to the south. The best vineyards in this micro-area belong to the Kindzmarauli Corporation and represent the oldest and highest quality wines, dating back several centuries.
In order for the wine to reach this high quality, the regulation of the harvest begins at the initial phase of the cutting. During the cutting process, all damaged and injured grapes are removed. Finally, the unripe (green) grapes are picked so that only one bunch remains on each shoot. This green harvest reduces the harvest by 50%, but this process considerably increases the quality of the wine.
