Wines of the European quality
Russian art was discovered to the world by avant-garde artists in the twentieth century. Now, at the beginning of the XXI century, Russian winemakers are on the verge of opening the great wine-making terroir of Russia. Likuria wines combined these discoveries. The result exceeded all expectations. Likuria are unique avant-garde wines with a unique character of the Russian terroir. The process of production begins with organic work in vineyards that grow on the marl and limestone soils in Lefkadia Valley appellation.
Manual harvesting and careful double sorting at the first gravitational winery in Russia preserve all the qualities of the valley’s grapes, preventing the oxidation of berries and wines. Controlled fermentation and aging in barriques from French and Russian oak give elegance and depth to European and Caucasian grape varieties.
The Likuria wine collection consists of 13 dry wines made from Russian grapes grown in the Caucasus foothills. Red and white wines are presented in monosort and blend versions. These wines regularly become winners at various international competitions and exhibitions and are available to all who appreciate the quality and taste of good wines.
