Went to this place after visiting Tsinandali's mamuli park . Nice garden but were disappointed with food. Too salty khachapuri , old fried eggplants staffed with salty garlic old Georgian brad and too high price for a glass of wine ( not full of course ) - 15 GEL !!!! Might be accepted but tourists but not native Georgians. This comment I would address to the management and not staff .

Shumi Winery, we visited with the whole family, and it's one of the best experiences we've had in Georgia. The service was outstanding. As soon as we arrived at the parking area, we were warmly greeted and assigned a guide who spoke our language. She conducted a comprehensive tour for us, providing detailed explanations about everything. Be sure to opt for the wine tasting experience – we compared wines made using the traditional Georgian qvevri method with those from the European-style cistern (Georgian and European methods), and it was truly enlightening!

The winery boasts a fantastic restaurant on its premises. The food was incredibly delicious, especially when enjoyed in the fresh air. What impressed us was the abundance of cozy corners. You can pick any spot for lunch or wine tasting. The ambiance is charmingly picturesque, perfect for bloggers and photography enthusiasts, especially after a couple of glasses of wine.

We bought their special sparkling wine to take with us, and when we tried it later in Tbilisi, it was outstanding! Much better than French champagne, I strongly recommend it. And don't miss out on trying the Zigu ice cream – it's excellent. We loved our visit so much that we spent two days there. On the second day, we attended a masterclass on making churchkhela and khachapuri. Everyone found it fascinating, and we took our creations with us. The service was impeccable. The manager arranged the masterclass timing according to our convenience. These are truly my sincere impressions. I wholeheartedly recommend everyone to visit this place!

The place is very nice. Outdoor and indoor sitting is also nice. The guy who oriented us about the history of the company, different wine products, production and what are the different varieties of products they produce and sell. Very informative. Very knowledgeable guy and definitely we will come back again.

The territory of the winery place is beautiful, a lot of cute details. We bought wine tour and khinkali master class, and then have a dinner. Master class was very interesting, we got a lot of emotions. All food was delicious. Thanks for this experience

The winery itself is in a beautiful location, and we liked the tour and the tastings (especially the Zigu wine was very delicious). But it started to go bad once we decided to do the Khinkali Masterclass. The Masterclass was 40 GEL for making 10 Khinkali’s. But the lady who did the masterclass had zero patience to teach us, and was rushing so much all the time. The impression we had is that she wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible. She literally made 5 of the 10 Khinkali’s herself, instead of letting us making the 10 Khinkhalis. The whole masterclass lasted less than 10 mins (maybe even only 5 mins). And the Khinkhalis were quite tasteless. That masterclass was a complete rip-off. Still, the masterclass was not the worst thing. That was the moment when the bill came. We had ordered some potatoes with onions for 8 GEL. When the bill came they charged 18 GEL. Apparently they added pork to the potatoes, which why they said it was 18. But we never asked for pork. This wasn’t such a big deal for us in itself, but the reaction of a 18-year old waiter with a Star Wars-shirt (maybe he was the son or grand-son of the owner?) when we said something about it was absolutely disrespectful. He basically blamed us for not having told them that they brought us the wrong dish, and that’s why we should pay the 10 GEL extra. So we were getting the blame for their mistake. We arrived in a heated discussion, and when I said I was not gonna pay for the extra 10 GEL, he replied ‘well, I am not gonna pay either, so you better pay for it’. The behavior of this guy is unacceptable and not fitted in any way for a place like Shumi. In the end the staff deleted this extra 10 GEL for the bill, but the damage was already done. I absolutely refused to pay the 10% service charge only because of him. Another waitress got very mad about this, and basically threw my change on the table. The only person that was nice was the guide of the tour. Today we went to Khareba, another beautiful winery in the neighborhood, where we got double the hospitality and taste for half the price. If you can only do one winery, skip Shumi, and head to the Khareba winery. You won’t regret it.

We had a really wonderful visit. Our guide Tamari was very friendly and informative and we learned a lot from her about Georgian wines, wine making, and its history. All of their wines were really good but I have to say that the Zigu wine made from a mixture of 500 grape varietals was absolutely incredible. Their place is really a combination wine museum and winery so I highly recommend this as part of any Georgian itinerary.

A fantastic find on the drive from Telavi to Vazisubani. Shumi winery is stunningly beautiful and well worth the stop! Ask for Lasha as your tour guide. We learned everything about the history of Georgian wine making and he took the time to answer all of our questions. He also led us through a delicious wine tasting in their beautiful garden. 5-star location and 5-star service from Lasha! We left with three bottles of wine to take home. :-)

Shumi Winery has amazing views and the best wines.
When we arrived in Shumi our personal guide Lasha was waiting for us, he guide us through the museum and showed us a cellar, where he explained the differences between traditional and classic technologies. He clearly loved his job and was explaining so passionately about his favorite wines, so we decide to taste Khikhvi, which was included in the tasting package and we also bought the first sparkling wine made in kvevri that Shumi has and we both agreed that Khikhvi was the best amber wine we've ever had and sparkling wine one of the best. We also wanted to take the first bio-dynamic wine with us, but unfortunately, we didn't have enough space to take it.
We really enjoyed the place, we both agreed that Shumi has one of the best wines in Georgia and the smiling face of our tour guide was the highlight of our day!
