GWS is one of Georgia’s most important and internationally recognized wineries, based in the Kakheti region in the east of the country, where the Saperavi grape is at its best. Owning over 400 ha of vines, it is under the tightly controlled and exceptionally professional stewardship of Philippe Lespy, formerly Head Viticulturist at Château Mouton-Rothschild in Bordeaux for over eight years. GWS produces wonderfully expressive wines that represent some of the finest value in Georgian winemaking.
