"Gvirabi" is a tunnel dug out of the flank of the Greater Caucasus Mountains near Kvareli in Kakheti. It has a natural temperature of 12-14˚C throughout the year, ideal for storing and ageing wine. The tunnel was originally built by the military towards the end of the 1950s. The rapid development of military technology, however, rendered the tunnel’s defensive potential obsolete and it lost its meaning. From that moment on, the tunnel was used to store Kakheti’s finest wines. The total length of tunnel is 7.7 kilometers. The tunnels are used for different purposes: one is for tourists, whereas large quantities of wine are stored and aged in the other. This is where the Winery Khareba a stores around 25,000 bottles of its finest wines.
