Close to Shamkir, backed by starkly arid hills, is the Sharg-Ulduzu winery. Meaning ‘Star of the East’, Sharg-Ulduzu produces a range of dry red single grape wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Saperavi) along with blends in which a traditional cooling technique stops fermentation to produce low-alcohol semi-sweet wines maintaining much of the natural sugar. Examples include Shemkirskaya Krepost (Merlot-Cabernet-Sauvignon), Shishtapa (Saperavi-Merlot) and Skazka Vostoka (Saperavi-Tavkveri). The whites follow a similar pattern and include a good dry Bayan Shira. The winery organises tours of the site and degustations of the various wines on offer, accompanied by tasty snacks. Also included is a visit to the winery’s museum, offering a glimpse into the winemaking traditions of the Shamkir region.
