The village of Dimi is located on the Imereti lowland on the right bank of the Khanistskali River. There is a wine factory in the village. Nearby there is Ajameti Managed Reserve.

The village of Dimi was first mentioned in the historical sources in 1853, however the researchers assume that the name of the village comes from the name of the Fortress “Dimni” mentioned by Leonty Mroveli (a chronicler who lived in the 11th century). In the village, there is also a hill with remains of the settlement from the Bronze Age and a tower from the 17th–18th century.


The historical name of the village is “Vardtsikhe” which means the castle of roses. The village is located at the confluence of Khanistskali and Rioni Rivers.

In the Early Middle Ages, one of the most important towns of Egrisi Kingdom was located in that place. The town was first mentioned in the historical resources in the 6th century. In Byzantine sources, the town was called Rodopolis, and in Georgian sources – Vartsikhe or Vardtsikhe. Because of its geographical location it was of great strategic and economic importance. In the 6th century during the Persian-Byzantine wars it passed from hand to hand.
