The remarkable grape varieties such as Tsolikauri, Usakhelauri, Ojaleshi, Aleksandrouli, and Mujuretuli are grown here. Exclusively high quality wines are made of red grape varieties Aleksandrouli and Mujuretuli (e.g. Kvanchkara). The most expensive grape variety in Georgia Usakhelauri is cultivated here. High enough demand is also on Tsolikauri which is used in making a well-known wine Tvishi. All time popular Kvanchkara micro-zone is in this region. Orbeli plant has been recently merged with Tvishi wine plant in the same region and is in the process of restructuring. The merge served the purpose of creating a modern plant that will operate on the platform of Orbeli and Tvishi joint plants and initially produce 375 000 bottles of premium wines from endemic grapes of that region. Both Orbeli and Tvishi wine plants are well supplied with electricity and water. The latter is remarkable for its chemical substances and flavor. The plants have several decades of experience in winemaking and generally produced and distributed wine in bulks. The region is rich with many signature grape varieties which will be the most attractive advantage of the modern wine plant. New Orbeli plant can be well designed to become the premium wine producer and attract its market niche among the premium wine lovers.
