Production method Georgian Kakhetic Qvevri technique In this traditional technique, the wine ferments and ages in a large earthenware jug. The Krakhuna is pressed without grape sprigs and ferments for 8-9 days in contact with one third of the grape seeds. After 8-9 days, the wine is transferred to other qvevris and continues to age without grape seeds. After a month and a half, the wine is again transferred to other qvevris for filtering, where the wine is stored for another 6 months.
Characteristic of the Obene vineyard is that the Qvevris are buried in the ground outside. Next to the Qvevri is a tree that provides shade.
