Winery

The place where grape is transformed into an excellent wine must to be special. This very idea was a cornerstone for the people who in October 2006 founded “Badagoni” winery. While constructing the wine factory this team actively cooperated with the worldwide famous experts. The wine factory building, its equipment and the laboratory fully meet the ISO standards.

The winery is equipped with the newest and unique microfiltration and bottling systems, created and installed by the leading Italian companies “Bertolaso” and “Enotec,” exclusively for “Badagoni.” Both of them ensure food safety, exclude oxygen leak and prevent any contact with iron, which is vital for transmission of organoleptic characteristics into the wine.

Microfiltration and bottling systems of the winery represent the maximum of the technological possibilities existing throughout the world nowadays. Microfiltration of wines and bottle washwater runs in automatic mode. Wine goes through many filters, thus preventing ingress of any bacteria, yeast or microbes in the final product.

The equipment is manufactured especially for “Badagoni” with direct supervision of Dr. Donato Lanati and it is prohibited to make a similar one. We transfer all the virtues of grape into the bottle without unnecessary manipulations. Following this approach, we create outstanding wines that gain international acknowledgement year by year.

The winery is equipped with the stainless steel enfolded reservoirs, vinificators and horizontal autoclaves. This equipment allows us to run the fermentation and vinification processes on professional level and produce excellent wines and sparkling wines.

Badagoni wines are matured in French oak barrels situated in a wine cellar clad with 300 years old Georgian bricks.

Resuming all the above mentioned, we claim to be a winery respecting old Georgian traditions and at the same time having the most innovative approaches and passion for advanced technologies.

Alaverdi Monastery wine cellar

Silhouetted against the backdrop of the Caucasus Mountains, Alaverdi Monastery is truly the heart and the soul of Kakheti and the whole Georgia. This imposing Orthodox Christian marvel situated at the river Alazani valley, dated back from the 6 th century, was the center of enlightenment with centuries long Georgian wine-making traditions.

Wine-making was an essential element of the Georgian monks’ regimen and during the frequent invasions the wine-making tradition was carried on in the monasteries. Not a long time ago, Georgian archaeologists digging at the site the Alaverdi Monastery unearthed a massive 9 th century wine cellar, containing more than forty Kvevris, the remnants of the monastery’s glorious past. With the help of Badagoni the local monks at Alaverdi started to make a very special monastic wine again. In their able hands the ancient Georgian tradition of wine-making in Kvevris is well anchored, for they treat it like a treasured gift from their ancestors.

In this very cellar there is created marvelous wines of Badagoni – “Alaverdi Tradition” (red and white Kvevri wine). The red wine is matured in monastery’s wooden casks. We are proud of the fact, that Badagoni took a huge part in the reconstruction and preservation of this unique ancestral tradition.

Tasting the wine made in the monastery’s renovated wine cellar is like taking a bite out of the past.
