This variety, used mainly for rosé wines, is mostly found in the Guria and Adjara regions of western Georgia. During the early period of Georgian viticulture, Chkhaveri vines were trained to grow up trees—a process known as maghlari. Late ripening and low yielding, Chkhaveri grapes are typically harvested in the second half of November. Chkhaveri grapes produce soft, harmonious wines with aromas of white fruits and moderate to high degrees of alcohol.
