Temuri Dakishvili is a 4th generation winemaker in the Dakishvili family. Temuri's father is reputed as one of the best winemakers of Georgia, which meant that Temuri had some really big shoes to fill, but Temuri is well on his way to becoming a winemaking authority in Georgia.
As winemaker at the Vita Vinea winery, he has shown his own unique style combined with the highest level of quality. His wines are also highly favoured by the wine drinking community.
He is also head winemaker of Teliani Valley, a position his father Giorgi held in the past as well. Big wine producers like Teliani Valley and Vita Vinea do not like to take risks and only work with the best in the field. And they know that the Dakishvili offers the best winemakers.
The Dakishvili family winery and vineyards are in the village Shalauri near the town Telavi, in Eastern part of Georgia. They have been growing grapes and producing wine for nearly 10 decades. With traditional and fantastic grapes like Saperavi, Rkatsiteli and Kisi grown on their own vineyards. All their wines are estate bottled. They use barrels and qvevri/amphora to age wines in cellar and release wines later than the norm to allow them to develop and mature.
The wines are sold directly to leading Georgian restaurants and the best wine boutique shops. You'd be lucky to get your hands on one of their wines!
