The white grape variety comes from Georgia, Synonyms are Tchkhaveri and Vanis Chkhaveri. According to a non-verifiable and improbable hypothesis, it should already play a role in the Homer (8th century BC) mentioned wines from Colchis in the southern Caucasus. The very late ripening vine with reddish berries produces fruity white wines. It is grown in the regions of Adjara and Guria in the west and Apkhazeti in the northwest. In 2010, 26 hectares were designated.
