~ 8,000 Years in Every Bottle ~

Georgia is widely regarded as "the birthplace of wine," with winemaking traditions that date back more than 8,000 years. We are proud to work with some of Georgia's best winemakers and importers to bring you an extensive selection of unique wines.

Many of the wines we carry are made in qvevris, large handmade clay vessels buried underground. It is common for wines made in this way for the juice, skins, seeds and stems all to ferment together before the juice is separated. The resulting wines have complex flavors and aromas not found in wines made from other methods.

Discover Georgia Tour
October 2019

Join us and our friends at Forktown Food Tours next fall for an exciting culinary experience like no other. Experience firsthand the genuine hospitality, incredible food & wine and magical landscapes that inspired Kargi Gogo.

We’ll eat and drink our way around the country, learning to cook in village homes, tasting wine in the vineyards, enjoying Georgia’s legendary “supra” feasts and so much more. All of the details and the sign-up list for more information are over at forktown.com!


About

Kargi Gogo was born in the homes, restaurants and vineyards of the Republic of Georgia, where we — Sean Fredericks and McKinze Cook — served as US Peace Corps volunteers from 2010 to 2012. We spent countless hours in kitchens and around dinner tables, falling in love with the ingredients, techniques and recipes that make up Georgia’s unique culinary traditions.

Returning home, we opened the country’s first and only Georgian food cart in 2013 in downtown Portland, Oregon. Kargi Gogo soon earned a loyal following and drew the attention of USA Today, The Associated Press, Serious Eats, Plate Magazine, The Cooking Channel and Georgian national television.

Today, Kargi Gogo is an intimate, casual counter-service restaurant in Portland’s Alberta Arts District. Our menu focuses on some of the traditional Georgian foods that we love, as well as new interpretations of those dishes. We offer an entirely Georgian wine selection, including wines by the glass and bottles for you to enjoy at home. We extend to you the same legendary hospitality that makes Georgia such a special place.
