Our Cellar is built on the place of an ancient city NELKARISI (1st Century A.D). It was the home for Mithraic culture where winemaking was a very important component of life. The proof are the Qvevris of that time which can still be found on this territory. In 4th century Christianity was spread and these two cultures were merged. The ruins of this iconic era are available for the visitors for the first time after many years. They can enjoy guided tours and a beautiful nature while hiking.
