Over the course of many years, the importance of Samegrelo's winemaking was not properly valued in Georgia, and therefore wine tourism was not a priority in regional development.
Oda Family Winery, together with Vino Martville, brought back Samegrelo's terroir-oriented winemaking traditions after a long pause, introduced Samegrelo to the world's wine-oriented countries as a winemaking region, and established Samegrelo's wine tourism's first successful location.
Family Winery Wine was always produced in Oda's open-air marani. Keto began bottling and selling it in 2016. In the first year, the wine was sold in the local market in various bars, and in 2017 began to be exported to the USA. In 2019, Oda distributed wines to seven countries across four continents - USA, Japan, Germany, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, and Israel. The wines are available in boutique natural wine bars, shops, and restaurants.
Oda produces wines from rare Megrelian, Lechkhumian, and Rachan grape varieties. Oda and its partner vineyards share ethical, organic agricultural principles, in which the use of systematic treatments and chemical fertilizers is prohibited in the vineyards. Minimal intervention is also the main philosophy in the winery. Wines are not filtered and are produced without any additions, except in some cases minimal amounts of sulfur, which are permitted in organic winemaking.
In 2016-2018, in addition to Ojaleshi, Oda began to plant old Megrelian and Abkhazian endemic grape varieties: Chvitiluri, Koloshi, Dudghushi, Lakvazhi, and Ashugazhi. We will produce our first wine in limited quantity from this vineyard in 2021.
