Babaneuris Marani (Babaneuri Wine Cellar) is a small artisan winery located in eastern part of Georgia (Kakheti, Akhmeta, Village Babaneuri). We own 10 hectare of vineyards and produce natural and unfiltered wines fermented and aged in Kvevri by ancient Georgian method. We use hand picked grapes only from our vineyards and produce limited quantities of wine. Since all of our wines are aged exclusively in kvevris, no flavors are imparted from oak barrels. What some might consider a lack of oak, we view as an opportunity to let the quality of the grapes and the resulting wine shine through.

Located in the main winemaking region of Georgia, Mosmieri is a Chateau & Winery combining a traditional winery, a fine-dining restaurant, and a Chateau hotel, surrounded by vineyards and the spectacular Caucasus Mountains.

It is situated within vineyards and sits on a gentle slope overlooking the beautiful Alazani Valley and facing the snow-capped mountain range of the Great Caucasus,‘’-reads their page.
