Joni’ Okro is one of the most respected natural winemakers in Kakheti, Eastern Georgia, where he concentrates on traditional long skin contact amber wines and increasingly a small range of delicious pet nats. His Kakhetian wines are sourced from cool high altitude vineyards instead of the warmer plains his wines retain freshness and vitality and have concentration levels rarely seen. He also works with grapes from Kartli and Imereti. His vineyards are farmed naturally and zero additions ensure the wines remain ‘alive’ in the bottle. John shares his time between his job in Tbilisi as a Telecommunications Engineer, farming and producing his traditional family wines and recently running a popular tasting room and restaurant above his cellar in Signagni.
