Founded in 2001, Shumi Winery is a leading producer of high-quality Georgian wines. Its large estate is located in the Kakheti wine region’s famous Tsinandali village.
Shumi Winery takes its name from an old Georgian word that means authentic, undiluted wine. The winery’s griffin logo refers to “Phaskunji”, a creature from Georgian mythology. Legend has it that the griffin brought the very first bunch of grapes to the people, and from these grapes, people started growing vines on the earth.
Shumi owns 300 hectares of vineyards in various microzones throughout Georgia, each with its own terroir, climate, and history.
While the Shumi wines from the local area are known for being distinctly Kakhetian in style, their passion is much broader as they work to educate guests from around the world with their impressive vineyard collection of over 400 indigenous varieties as well as their museum of ancient wine artifacts.
