Description

Better Half is a boutique winery nestled in the dragon hills of village of Zmeevo near to the center of the universe producing rare wines from organic estate single vineyards.
It has its own vineyards, located at the foot of the extinct volcano Betera, new ones are planted, projects with interesting varieties are made. The Better Half winery has limited series. We do not have wine from which to produce more than 2500 - 3000 bottles of the type.
The volumes are really very small, which is in the concept of garage wine. The containers are a maximum of 1000 liters. We have containers of 300-500 liters, we can say that we make boutique wines. Garage wines have long been known around the world. Every choice that is made is of absolute importance with exceptional attention to detail. The grapes are picked and plucked only by hand. We work on old technology, as before 2500-3000 years in clay vessels - KEVRI (amphorae) from Georgia, some are already buried, and others in the open. Also, the winery has 300-600 liters vessels from Florence, Italy. The results are very encouraging - we vinify the same grapes in a modern vessel (stainless steel) and in clay, and we get two completely different wines. The wines are aged in French oak barrels. The volumes are really very small, which is in the concept of garage wine. The containers are a maximum of 1000 liters.

History

The manager of the winery believes that the truth is in knowing the nuances. And since this is his philosophy of life, he tries to apply it in what he does. Things should not be at any cost, but should give pleasure. This is how this small Better Half project started 3 years ago. In fact, it started a long time ago with the planting of vineyards above the village of Zmeevo. In the beginning the experimental vineyard was about 70 decares, now it is about 200 decares. The plantations are mostly white. The place is interesting because it is ventilated, southern slope with a very interesting soil composition.
The philosophy of BETTER HALF GARAGE WINES is to revive the ancient approach to wine production, combined with the latest quality control and technology. The Better Half winery is very small. We do not have wine from which to produce more than 2,500 bottles. In most cases, the grapes for them are from another of our vineyards near the village of Dalboki. There are about 100-120 decares of plantations.
