“My childhood in Georgia inspired me to sell Georgian Wines”… Henry Mchedlishvili, Founder.
Originally from Georgia, Kakheti, Henry was growing up in wine culture; since his relocation to the UK he discovered how little his new friends from the UK knew about Georgia.
Henry started his wine-importing business ten years ago and became the biggest importer of Georgian Wines UK.
Henry’s Wines offer an excellent selection of Georgian wines UK from different producers as well as wines from Plumpton, England made by Henry and his team using the traditional Georgian Qvevri winemaking method.
One day, I received a gift of a bottle of amber Qvevri Georgian wine from a friend in Georgia. This sparked an idea in my mind – why couldn’t we make Qvevri wines in England?
That’s how the idea and concept of “Henry’s Marani” were born in 2017.
Since then with the great support of Chris Foss from the Plumpton Agricultural College Wine Department,
Mako Abashidze from the British Georgian Chamber of Commerce the great idea came to life- currently, at the territory of the Plumpton College Wine Department, there is a fully functioning traditional Georgian Marani ( winery) with the little Museum of history of the Georgian Winemaking. The total production capacity of the Marani is up to 3,000 bottles. The first harvest from 2017 was an immediate success.
Henry is hosting regular tours and tastings at the Marani.
