The Sharg Ulduzu winery is close to Shamkir, backed by the arid foothills of the Lesser Caucasus Mountains. 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 decent, dry Bayanshira. Site tours are available that include degustations of all the various wines produced here, accompanied by tasty snacks and including a guided tour of the Sharg Ulduzu museum. That offers a glimpse into the rich, German-inspired winemaking traditions of the Shamkir region.
