Besini Company, founded in 2004, is one of the fastest growing companies in the field of viticulture and winemaking and is the keeper of history and ancient traditions of Georgian Wine. Since ancient times, our ancestors used to make divine wine "Besini" from selected grapes and bring it to the gods. ("Besini" is translated from the ancient Georgian as "sacrificial wine").
Our vines are grown in Kakheti region, the most fertile region for grape growing and wine-making in Georgia. Owing to the convenient round-the-clock temperature, precipitation, and duration of daylight, we harvest grapes of high quality that ultimately guarantees production of fine wines.
At the intersection of history, culture, and wine grape variety lies a region referred to as the “Cradle of Wine.” Georgia, about a 5-hour flight due west of Rome, and resting at the same latitude as the Oregon/California border, boasts a climate and terrains well suited for the cultivation of wine grapes.
Situated at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, Georgia is recognized as the oldest winemaking country in the world. Archaeological evidence suggests that Georgia has completed more than 8,000 vintages—an enduring history that has given rise to more than 500 indigenous grape varieties across ten distinct winegrowing regions.
With its variety of grapes and winemaking practices, Georgia offers the wine-drinker an unparalleled range of tastes: some unique, some familiar, and some nearly impossible to describe. As winemakers continue to explore and experiment with the country’s native grape varieties, more distinctive and unique wines will continue to emerge from the region.
