Elya Tleuzhanova, originally from Kazakhstan, moved to Kuala Lumpur in 2010. She got married to Stanley Chee (please ignore his crazy face in this photo :) he is usually more sane) three years later. During one of her return trips from Kazakhstan, she brought back two bottles of her favorite Georgian wine, as they were not available in Malaysia. She brought a bottle to a friend's house party. All her friends loved the pleasant taste of the semi-sweet wine and suggested her to bring in these wine varieties to Malaysia.
Six months later, she got the company rolling and imported the very first batch of Georgian wines to Malaysia. She made it her mission to introduce unique Georgian wines to Malaysian wine lovers and eventually to the South East Asia.
