Alaverdi Monastery Cellar is dated back to the 8-10th centuries. The Monastery is located in the Kakheti region of Eastern Georgia where world famous wines are produced. Wine making in Qvevri (clay vessel used for fermentation and storage of wine) is the oldest Georgian tradition.The historical cellar was rehabilitated in 2005, from which period, the monks of Alaverdi Monastery grow ancient Kakhetian grape varieties in their vineyard that result in unique wines. The monks are commited to making natural wine in an authentic Georgian style.
