Orgo is a small family-owned winery focusing on producing high quality wines made in qvevri. Running the winery is young Temuri Dakishvili, the Dakishvili family’s fourth generation winemaker and a rising star in Georgian winemaking.
Following his father’s footsteps - Temuri’s father, Giorgi, was chief winemaker at Teliani Valley and is now winemaker and Managing Director at the nearby Schuchmann/Vinoterra winery - he studied winemaking at the University of Heilbronn in Germany and is now dedicated to the art of qvevri winemaking.
The winery is located near the town of Telavi in eastern Georgia. It produces a very limited quantity of wines fermented in qvevris or oak barrels without additives and filtration, a traditional Georgian winemaking style going back 8000 years that produces wines with uniquely distinctive flavors. Temuri uses native grapes including Rkatsiteli, Kisi, Mtsvane and Saperavi, that are sourced from the 2.5 hectares stony and well-drained Vita Vinea vineyard that he owns with his brother Daviti.
