Iberieli is a family winery run by Zurab Topuridze in the Guria Region of West Georgia. The name Iberieli – which was chosen by Zurab’s children – refers to the ancient people in Caucasus who made wine several thousands of years ago, believed to be the inventers of Qvevri winemaking. The family’s aim is to maintain the authentic tradition of Qvevri winemaking in Georgia, producing unique natural wines from native grapes, truly representing terroir of origin. The entire wine making process takes place within the quevri – initial fermentation right through to maturation, with the fermenting grape juice being left on the skins and even grape stems to produce wines of exceptional flavour and complexity.
