Levan Bandzeladze founded Marbano (Acronyms of the full name of his daughter Mar-iam Ban-dzeladze) as a continuation of his family’s decades old winemaking heritage. Levan’s family was resettled to the Eastern Georgia in 1941. Since then, Bandzeladzes started making wine with the traditional Georgian technology.

Family has owned vineyards since 1950 and cultivates several indigenous Georgian grape types, such as Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, Goruli Mtsvane, Chinuri, Tavkveri and Asuretuli. Marbano, like the rest of our partner wineries, crafts natural wines in small batches. Levan has a mission to repair the damage that was made to the Georgian wine culture by the Soviet Union. During that period, winemaking was industrialized in Georgia as the country was the main wine supplier for the whole soviet union. Levan’s artisanal wines reflect the true characteristics of an exceptional Georgian wine.
