Wine “Gileni” is a dream come true of four generations. Winemaking and love of viticulture was introduced to the founder of winery “Gileni”, Tornike Khvitia, by his grandfather in his early childhood. The wisdom and experience of the grandfather had been transforming into an idea for years and finally in 2003, on the gracious land of Kakheti, the Khvitia family has started cultivating vineyards.
The founder’s desire was his children to continue this path and symbolically, he named the winery - “Gileni”, which reflects initials of his three children's first names. Based on family traditions, “Gileni” is made with unique technology and unites generations. In the future, the descendants will continue the work initiated by the ancestors and follow the tradition of winemaking scattered in legends.
Currently, our family owns 30 HA vineyards, where we are cultivating several sorts of grapes; And we are still keeping on the expansion of our vines. All our employees are socially vulnerable people and refugees, who live in Sagarejo. We try to create inclusive environment for all.
Our winery is entirely oriented on the export. “Gileni” wine cellar uses modern methods and continues to embed the newest technologies. Today it is fully equipped with European plants.
We pay great attention to defend Georgian wine culture and traditions. We believe that combination of experiences, traditions and modern technologies is the best way of preparing exceptional wines.
