Our history dates back to the 19th century when our ancestors were settled in the village Shashiani in Kakheti and built a house with a wine cellar. Family members quickly adapted to the local winemaking techniques and became well-known winemakers in these areas.
It was Alex, one of our ancestors, who first produced a commercial wine into our family. Through the years he was exporting the wines in barrels to the Russian Empire. Since then, winemaking is a glorious profession of a Chekurishvili family.
Sadly, Georgia being part of the USSR didn't allow our ancestors to own a private business or a significant amount of vineyards and it was how our commercial wine production was paused. It was in 2018 when we decided to commercialize the wine production again, renovated the wine cellar, and kickstarted the winery, again...
Our winery name, Chekura, is originated from our surname - Chekurishvili.
