Three shepherds decide to ask Elibo, their apprentice’s uncle, to spare some good wine for them. Knowing the reputation of his uncle the boy refuses. That’s when the shepherds decide to steal some wine from Elibo’s wine cellar but the wine turns out so good that they forget about their sleeping "host" and finish a secret supper with loud singing thus waking Elibo up. Enraged by their impudence the host almost throws them away but innate Georgian hospitality prevails and they end supper together.
