The Story

The Simple Wine is the idea of Georgian-born Malkhaz Gorgisheli. Wine is in his blood as the oldest sediment of wine was found in the Republic of Georgia from 8,000 years ago. Georgians were enjoying wine before the Greeks or Romans!

After moving to the United States in 1996, Malkhaz realized that many of his favorite types of wines did not exist in the US market. Furthermore, many foreign wines were replicated without preserving quality. And although there are many wonderful boutique wineries in the United States, Malkhaz was disappointed to see how often wine is industrially produced. Big companies frequently buy grapes from different vine-growers, add sugars/flavor enhancers, slap a label on a bottle, and somehow call it wine.

However, as an incredibly passionate wine enthusiast, Malkhaz sought out to stand against these big companies and bring his appreciation for family-owned, authentic wines to the United States for his friends to enjoy! His love for wine and respect for authentic, genuine winemaking eventually evolved into The Simple Wine.

Our company's goal is to deliver you natural and authentic wine imported mainly from Italy, as well as some Spanish, Georgian, and limited fine wine vintages from around the world. We work exclusively with family-owned, boutique wineries that own their vineyards and quality control their wine from idea to exhibition. Our wineries put their family names on the labels of their bottles and defend their wine with honor.

Since all of our wineries are dedicated to quality first, all of our wines pass EU organic certification (meaning no added sugars, preservatives, chemicals, or added sulfites). Low sulfites mean you can enjoy wine without terrible hangovers the next day!
