OUR STORY

Lagvinari is a small, organic winery in Georgia, founded by Doctor Eko Glonti.
He works closely with local, artisan grape growers and uses both indigenous grape varieties and ancient winemaking techniques (fermenting grapes in kvevri), to promote sustainable Georgian farming and preserve its rich cultural heritage.

Eco Certifications

Just as we admire each of our hosts for their singularity, we appreciate that their sustainability journeys are also unique. Because of this, we do not require our hosts to have an eco certification or two under their belt, we simply guide them on improving their sustainable business practices one imperfect – but positive – step at a time. If a host has eco certifications they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

NGOs & Local Impact Projects Supported

Each of our hosts strive to have a positive impact on their local communities. Some of our hosts already have established connections with local partners to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their communities, others are in the process of creating these long term relationships. If a host has local NGO connections they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

What our hosts say..

Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.

Kakheti is an area of great interest as a wine destination (being the region with the greatest variety of wine in Georgia), as well as for its enchanting landscape and gastronomic flair.

Wine production in Georgia dates back to the Bronze Age and, it is said, the word wine, or vin, is derived from the Georgian ღვინო…‘gvino’.

Georgia’s traditional wine making method of fermenting grapes in earthenware, egg-shaped vessels has been added to the world heritage list of the United Nations educational, scientific and cultural organisation (UNESCO).
