The Wolski’s family story begins in the 1830s with the November uprising in Poland. Fighting for independence, the ancestors were caught and exiled by the Russian Empire to Georgia. Following local traditions, they vinified wine for the household consumption. George made a family debut with Chateau Khashmi wines first sold in 2016.

Wolski’s attitude towards winemaking is solid and unshakeable: “There is nothing added, nothing removed, and varietal wines need no blending between one another. It is a Bordeaux prerogative, not mine”. Not a bit of sulphites has been added, even with the commencement of worldwide distribution. There is also a commercial reason behind minimal intervention in Georgia. Wolski looks positively in the future, planning to call some of his wines after the younger son, Alexander. Indeed, wine is a family affair in Georgia.
