Welcome to the first ever in the UK Traditional Georgian Qvevri museum which includes the wine tasting hall -“Henry’s Marani”.
Marani is an elegant yet somewhat unusual Georgian word meaning “wine cellar”.
It was precisely in Georgia that the wine culture was born 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.
In 2013 the UNESCO enlisted the wine fermenting technology in Qvevri as Intangible Cultural Heritage.
As is the way in life, societies and civilisations have developed, changed and seen many dramatic changes over the 8 millennia; however, the Georgian nation has nurtured with love their wine making tradition and preserved it for posterity.
You can now experience this tradition of wine making in its original form at the wine department of Plumpton College in Sussex.
It is doubly pleasing to know that the Marani in Plumpton College is already up and running.
You will be able to find out about various historical samples of Georgian winemaking as well as taste wines matured in Qvevri, orange wine along with English sparkling wine to name but a few.
We also keep wines which we specially chose and brought directly from Georgia for you.
We are happy to host you at any weekend of your choice.
Just let us know a convenient date and time.
We can arrange transfers from Brighton and London for groups of 10 or more.
