Orgo is an artisan winery located in Eastern Georgia that specializes in the 8,000 year old Georgian Qvevri wine making tradition and sources all their grapes sourced from at least 50 year old vines. Making wines from old vines in Georgia is a rare and difficult project since during soviet times most older vines were ripped up and replaced so as to produce more grapes. Orgo is a labor of love and is one of the only example of old vine Georgian wines. The concentration of the old vine grapes and the skill of the winemakers is a unique combination for Georgian wines. Orgo produces distinct visions wines that follow the ancient Georgian qvevri style but raise it to new heights of elegance.
About the Wine Maker
This small artisan winery, located in the Kakheti AOC in eastern Georgia, is a project between the famous Georgian wine maker Gogi Dikishivili and his son Temur Dakishvili. Temur’s youth and energy coupled with Gogi’s experience and wisdom create a unique partnership, one that both honors the centuries old Dakishvili family winemaking tradition, yet makes it new again each year. The mission of Orgo and this partnership is to make singularly unique wines that add their own elegance and refinement to the 8,000 year old Georgian wine making tradition.
Gogi is the founding winemaker of several major Georgian producers including: Teliani Valley, Mildiani, Vinoterra/Schuchmann and Teleda/Orgo. He is a pioneer of the revival of the Qvevri wine technology in Georgia.
