Wine Man

Wine Man company is a family-owned company, founded by Alexandre I. Jorjadze in 1998 in Georgia. Our mission is to produce high quality wines – wines that we can be proud of!

Excellent, high quality wine cannot be produced per se. One of the main conditions in the production of perfect wine is relentless work of devoted people. We believe, that the wine is the result of a unique interaction of a man and the nature, and that interesting wine is made by interesting people. At our winery wines are made by one of the best Georgian winemakers David Maisuradze and Revaz Lashkhi.  They are carefully monitoring the quality of our wines, controlling every production process, from the primary treatment of grapes to bottling, guaranteeing the constant high quality of the product.

Wine Man winery exports its wines to the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the United States, China, Hong Kong, Poland, the Czech Republic, Japan, Canada, Australia, Tajikistan, Turkemnistan and Russia.

In 2009 Company Wine Man created a new line of wines under the brand SANTELI. Grapes from these wines are harvested from young vines. SANTELI are characterized by the individuality of grape varieties, grown up in the heart of the Georgian wine making – in Kakheti region. They distinguish oneself by the lively character and intensive fruit expresiveness. Our winemakers concentrated on the mostly demanded wines and presented to the wine amateurs interesting wines. Thanks to diverse tasting characteristics, these wines excellently match with various cuisines.
