Udis migrated to Georgia in 1922 from Azerbaijani villages Vartashen (modern Oğuz) and Kishlagh to escape from Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict. Nowadays Udi community lives in the village Zinobiani, in the Kvareli Municipality of the Kakheti region. This is the only Udi settlement in Georgia. Udis are descendants of Caucasian Albanian people. They strive to preserve their language and traditions.
