Schuchmann

Burkhard Scuchmann founded this winery at Telavi in the heart of Kakheti, Georgia's premier wine region in 2008, with the aim of specialising in top-quality wines from local grape varieties with the help of experienced winemaker Giorgi Dakishvili.

He currently owns 60 hectares of vineyards the oldest planted in 1986. As chairman of German Railways, Schuchmann was able to invest 7 million euros in the project which includes the up-to-date winery, hotel and restaurant, all happily placed near the vineyards close to the Caucasus mountains.

They produce two separate ranges of wines: Those fermented in stainless steel under the Schuchmann label and those fermented in qvevri (large clay amphoras buried in the earth) and aged in oak under the Vinoterra label. Wine has been made in this part of Georgia for 8,000 years, and the local varieties have proved that they work very well here, when cultivated for quality rather than volume.
