Former nightclub owner Niki Antadze is another influential natural winemaker this time working in the highly regarded PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) Manavi region of Kakheti. He farms his vineyards as naturally as possible, uses no chemicals in his marani and only traditional techniques to produce a variety of styles from the Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane and Saperavi grapes. These are wines with real soul, just like the man himself who is so laid back it is almost necessary to check for a pulse. Niki’s tiny production has a cult following for the extreme concentration and deep layers of complexity the wines exhibit, as well as their gentle soulfulness.
