Why We Do What We Do?
WHO ARE WE AT LIVING VINO
Living Vino is a plant-based restaurant and a natural wine bar in Tbilisi, Georgia
We’ve opened our doors on the 19th March 2020, approximately a week before the first covid lockdown. We are a restaurant that really has never seen any normality. But who says anything about being normal? Afterall, offering vegan food and not selling any factory wines isn’t really normal or usual for a business, isn’t it?
WHO ARE THE OWNERS?
Living Vino has been established by two friends from Ukraine who are experts in the world of natural and organic wine, digital marketing and finance. To form an initial team, they have enlisted help of a hospitality expert from the UK who has helped to ensure the highest possible service standards. Living Vino’s Team is truly passionate about quality plant-based cooking and offering a friendly service with a smile.
WHY or OUR MISSION
Living Vino believes in the importance of food and wine provenance.
Awareness of where your food and drinks are coming from is important for us. Being mindful about personal health and wellbeing, the wider environment and our planet is key.
Well-balanced and thought-through plant-based lifestyle, or call it vegan, is a solution to a healthy, happy and harmonious you, your family and the society.
Hence Living Vino takes a very close look at the nutritional value of our dishes, so they are providing enough protein and fibre to our guests and customers. Yes, you can get all necessary nutrients from plants! We focus on Mediterranean – inspired dishes that are healthy (well, most of them), made of whole foods and are wine-friendly.
Living Vino’s wine expert who holds the highest level WSET Diploma (UK) carefully handpicks the most expressive natural wines made by Georgian artisans without harmful additives and excessive sulphites. We invite you to enjoy natural wines and love your mornings after.
OUR GUESTS AND CUSTOMERS
Whilst we obviously do not have all the answers to the most important questions regarding healthy lifestyle (yes, we google things too), we are delighted to hear a very positive feedback from our guests and customers. Most of them confirm that they feel better and more energized with our menu items. Many are truly surprised how tasty are our plant-based dishes made without any meat or animal produce whatsoever! You don’t miss out on that, you gain lots of health benefits indeed. On top of that, natural wine drinkers report the ease they feel the next morning (you can forget the hangovers, really) and how tasty and expressive these natural wines are.
