12.07.2017 (Hvino News). Georgia's Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili inaugurated the opening of Nelkarisi Winery complex on July 9 near the village of Shilda, Kakheti region.

“This is one of the best samples of cooperation between government and private sector”, Kvirikashvili noted. “We have invested more than 4 million USD in this project, of which 600 00 USD is a preferential agro credit.

I believe this archaeological project will open a new interesting page in history of Georgia. I believe this place will raise special interest of tourists and it will become one of the key tourism destinations”, Giorgi Kvirikashvili said.

Nelkarisi Winery is built on the territory of the ancient city of Nelkarisi (1st century BC). Nelkarisi Winery complex unites a wine plant, wine shop, restaurant and wine cellar.
