About Henry's Marani
Welcome to the first ever in the UK Traditional Georgian Qvevri Museum & Winery – HENRY’s MARANI, established in 2017. MARANI is an elegant Georgian word meaning “wine cellar”.
It was precisely in Georgia where the wine culture originated some 8,000 years ago. The Georgians started making wine in what was later established as a traditional way of wine making – in Qvevri, a cone-shaped clay vessel buried in the ground. UNESCO enlisted the wine fermenting technology in Qvevri as an Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2013.
Henry Mchedlishvili, the Georgian by origin, founded HENRY’s MARANI after nearly 2 decades of importing wines from Georgia. This way he decided to bring the traditional way of Georgian wine-making to the UK. You can now experience this tradition in its original form at the wine department of Plumpton College in Sussex.
We usually offer unique wine tasting events, but due to pandemic this opportunity is somewhat limited atm. Instead, we offer qvevri wines made in HENRY’s MARANI as well as the wines which we specially chose and bring directly from Georgia for you.
