The Shuamta Gateway landscape is situated between the Gombori Pass and the Alazani Valley. The site of two historic monasteries, the area features thick Beech forests, expansive dry river washes, and stunning views of the greater Caucasus mountains.

Ruderal developed a master plan for the restaurant and surroundings that include outdoor dining and event spaces. The new Shuamta Hub features tourist services, gathering areas, and access to an interpretive trail system. The project is funded by the USAID Economic Security Program, in partnership with the Alaverdi Eparchy and the Badagoni Wine Company
