Mariam Iosebidze

Mariam's interest for wine started when she was working for a tourism company called Living Roots. Her work involved traveling all around Georgia visiting natural wine cellars and gaining knowledge from the producers themselves. During that time she also worked at the newly opened Gvino Underground, the first natural wine bar i Tbilisi, together with Ramaz Nikoladze, John Wurdeman and Niki Antadze (all outstanding natural winemakers!). The passion and inspiration from these people inspired Mariam herself to dream about one day making her own wine.

Okro's Wine

In the small town of Signaghi, in the Kakheti region of eastern Georgia, lies a small family-owned winery.
John Okruashvili grew up with John Wurdemann’s wife Ketevan (Pheasant’s Tears winery) and since 2009 he has been bottling his own wine under the name Okro’s Wine. Like many other producers in Georgia, the focus of winemaking lies in the passion for ancient winemaking rituals.
This includes fermentation in Qvevri and several monts of skin maceration.
