The Producer

About Artana

Since 2015, they have been meticulously cultivating biodynamic grapes and crafting natural raw wines, alongside other organic alcoholic beverages. Their overarching mission is clear: to produce only natural products while simultaneously upholding and advancing Georgia's rich winemaking heritage, which spans an impressive 6000 years. Despite being in the market for only three years, Artana Wines has swiftly risen to prominence, capturing the attention of both local and international markets. Beyond Georgian wine shops.

Kakheti's natural wines are distinguished by their vibrant acidity, intense fruit flavors, and distinct earthy undertones, offering a sensory journey that transports drinkers to the heart of Georgia's winemaking tradition.
