The cradle of winemaking
Winemaking in Georgia stretches back over 8,000 years of history. According to archaeological evidence, the first Georgian wines were made and stored in earthenware vessels called qvevri (or kvevri). The qvevri is Georgia’s most important and best-known winemaking vessel, and it remains the centerpiece of traditional winemaking in Georgia.
Havlabari Cellars takes its name after the ancient prominent part of Tbilisi - Havlabar, which since the 11th century has been the cosmopolitan centre of the art, culture and wine trade of the capital.
The famous Wine Rise of Havlabar with its ornate cliffside balconies for centuries houses many wine bars and cellars.
The heritage of Havlabar is inspired by the painting of Vagharshak Eibekian.
