The history of the Askaneli Winery & Distillery brand began almost 140 years ago. The title derives from winemakers by the old name of Chhajidze from the small Gurian village Askana (West Georgia). It is a place where the great-grandfather of the founders of the Askaneli Winery & Distillerys Company almost 140 years ago laid down the first wine cellar of the future dynasty. Althought, in those days, Chhajidze made the impossible possible: he deserved recognition of his wine not only in Georgia but also in the westerrn Europe. Even France,that is the centre of high-end wine and cognac, appreciated the skills of the self-taught winemaker from a small Georgian village.
The company «Askaneli Winery & Distillery» was founded in 1998. This year can be considered as the second year of birth of the famous dynasty. Nowadays «Askaneli Winery & Distillery» is ranked on the top of three largest manufacturers of luxury alcohol in Georgia.
The company’s product received more than 100 awards at various international exhibitions, competitions and tastings, including 18 gold, 28 silver and 14 bronze medals at the International professional competition-tastings. It’s been exported to the USA, China, India, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine and other countries.
