The Caucasus is a cradle of viticulture with a winemaking tradition that goes back thousands of years. 

The vineyard is almost entirely surrounded by forest and has two distinct soil types: the lower area has rich, loamy soil, which is ideal for red grape varieties. The upper area’s marl-rich and stony soil is perfect for the cultivation of white grapes.


Over 10 different varieties of grape grow in the vineyard. 
Plants of the highest quality imported from France and Italy are also cultivated.

White grape varieties:
  • Chardonnay
  • Pinot Blanc
  • Pinot Gris
  • Muscat Jaune
  • Viognier.
Red grape varieties:
  • Merlot
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Malbec
  • Syrah
  • Krasnostop *

Krasnostop – a very interesting and old autochthon (or native) Russian grape that is almost extinct.
DOMAINE BURNIER is cultivating this variety again, which brings forth an exclusive and full-bodied wine.
