Prince Juan Bagrationi - Premium Wine
The collaboration with His Royal Highness Prince Juan Bagration-Mukhrani, member of the Georgian royal family, and Shilda resulted in the creation of a new line of royal wine. The brand combines a diverse range of premium wines. The main goal of this collaboration is to enrich the wine production in the country by creating high-class wines and to pay tribute to the centuries-old culture of Georgian winemaking.
As recognized and confirmed by UNESCO, winemaking originated in Georgia 8,000 years ago. The Bagrationi family is one of the oldest royal dynasties in the world, with a long history of significant contributions to the Georgian wine production. Prince Juan follows the traditional methods of Georgian winemaking, but at the same time, brings new life and innovation to it.
One of Shilda’s brands is Rustaveli. This name represents wines made from special varieties of Georgian grapes, as well as family reserve cognacs that have been aged for many years. Some of the notable vintages in this line are a 50-year-old X.O. cognac, limited-edition Saperavi and Kvevri Saperavi, as well as Tsolikauri, Krakhuna and Chardonnay. These varieties are rare in Georgia and are produced in limited quantities.
Kakabadze is an exceptional brand for our winery. Kakabadze wines are made from ancient grape varieties, while the unique bottle labels are created based on the Imereti Landscapes series of paintings by a famous Georgian artist David Kakabadze. Shilda obtained exclusive rights for the use of the paintings on our labels from the artist’s family.
With such synthesis Kakabadze wines bring together our nation’s two most valued elements of culture: winemaking and art.
