Kakheti Red 2017
"Unknown aromas that Georgia keeps in its soil"
- Powerful, smooth, bewitching
- Vinified and aged in Kvevri
The Tasting of Saperavi
This 100% Saperavi from Artanuli Gvino (Kakha Berishvili, father of Ketevan (Gogo Wine)) has a dense color promising power and complexity. The kind of wine that stains you with its magnificent. There is grace in its texture, a kind of veil of tannic silk lining the mouth…
A salty nose with aromas of seaweed common to wines buried in amphorae. Stewed red fruit, spices, smooth tannins, the energy of the living, and unknown aromas that Georgia contains in its soil. Welcome to Kakheti, the cradle of viticulture.

Gogo Wine : The feminine strength of Georgian Natural Wines
After an experience in banking, Ketevan Berishvili (a cheerful and lively woman whom her friends call Keti) joined his father Kakha Berishvili in the vineyards (already known in the world of natural wine in Georgia as “Artanuli Gvino“). She vinified her first vintage in the family Marani (Georgian winery) in 2015, and nicknamed her estate “Gogo Wine” (Gogo means “girl” in Georgian). We suspect her of having chosen this name to assert herself in a country and a profession that sometimes remains very macho…
Her vineyard located in the village of Artana in Kakheti (the region where the first traces of winemaking were found) is pampered without chemicals but with cocotions of plants. Her red wines, like her orange wines, are vinified and aged without inputs (she wouldn’t even know how to add sulfites), in the purest Georgian tradition: in Kvevri (local terracotta amphora). Some are buried inside his marani, others outside. She often prefers the energy of wines aged outdoors, she confided to us during our visit.
For the moment, his father Kahka (a silent and smiling man) takes care of vinifying the Saperavi, and Keti of the other cuvées. The wines of Gogo wine, trodden under foot, are tannic, powerful, complex but all in elegance and subtlety. With each sip we drink a blend of tradition and freedom. This is by far one of our favorite wine estate in Georgia…!
