Becoming tea farmers was not something we had always dreamed of - we had successful corporate careers. It started when one of us read the story about hundreds of tea plantations in Georgia that had been abandoned almost overnight after the collapse of the Soviet Union. We learned that a lot of those plantations are still there, in a standstill after almost 30 years. It was a story that stuck with us, until we decided to do something about it.

RENEGADE ESTATE

The plantation lies between mountains, hidden from the outer world. Although it is close to the main road when standing in the plantation you sense a complete silence.
