Orgo, a small, artisan winery located in the Kakheti AOP in eastern Georgia, is a project between Georgian winemaker Gogi Dikishivili and his son Temur Dakishvili. Their mission is to make singular, unique wines that add their own voice to the 8,000-year-old Georgian winemaking tradition. To this end, Orgo only works with 50-80 year-old vineyards, an extremely rare and difficult project in Georgia since during the Soviet era, as many of these older vineyards were ripped up and replaced to increase production.
