Orgo

There is a very interesting definition and history behind that Georgian words “Teleda” and “Orgo”.

Teleda is an ancient name of Telavi, the main city of Kakheti region. The first archaeological findings about Telavi date back to the Bronze Age. One of the earliest surviving accounts of Telavi is from the 2nd century AD, by Greek geographer Claudius Ptolemaeus, who mentions the name Teleda (a reference to Telavi).

Org is the stone that was used as a closure of Qvevri in ancient times in Georgia. We still use that old tradition in our cellar for some Qvevris.
