Tbilvino received consultation from Italian growers and started cultivating vineyards in 2014. Nowadays company owns vineyards in several micro-zones of Kakheti, including Kindzmarauli and Mukuzani.
Certified, highest quality vine seedlings are cultivated on 405 ha in total, equipped with drip irrigation system. The system makes it possible to supply each plant of vine with a proper amount of water to prevent the shock from the drought and support its further development.
Nowadays, Tbilvino’s own vineyards include:
- Kindzmarauli Microzone, Kvareli area – 147 hectares of Saperavi and Rkatsiteli vineyards;

Kvareli vineyards are sloping towards the south-east, the soil is alluvial-deluvour, with average carbon. It contains the “duruji” river sand, which is the prerequisite for a high quality Saperavi grapes in Kindzmarauli.
The Vachnadziani vineyards are sloping towards the north-east, the soil is deluvour, moderately carbonate and contains a large amount of stones, which gives us the possibility to produce Mukuzani wines full of aroma.
The Shashian area is sloping towards the north-east, the soil is dark brown, moderately carbonate, has a strong structure and produces high quality grapes that can be used to make wines with deep aroma, such as Mukuzani, Kisi and Kakhuri Mtsvane.
2017 was the very first harvest season for Tbilvino. The future plans include expanding and developing new vineyards in various micro-zones of Kakheti region.
Laboratory is an integral and almost inseparable part of any winery. That’s why modern laboratories can be found in both of Tbilvino wineries, equipped with latest technologies.
Laboratory workers check and deliver analysis for every stage of wine making, starting from the soil analysis all the way to the final product examination. Wine or wine materials undergo detailed inspection on alcohol content, sulfur, sugar and other important parameters. Additionally, wine quality control is performed on a daily basis to ensure the safety and reliability of the final product.
