Georgia, which has a wine-making tradition that dates back to the earliest of times, is starting to catch up. Investment in new vineyards and wineries is already paying dividends and wines are beginning to earn places on the shelves of wine merchants in the UK. This webinar will take you on a journey of discovery around the vineyards of this fascinating country. There, wine making in amphorae (quevri) continues alongside temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and all the latest bells and whistles. You will also learn about the cultural heritage of the country and the warm and generous hospitality for which the Georgians are renowned. And if all this sounds like an ad. from a wine tour operator, well it is, because our sister company, Good Wine Tours Limited, is running a tour to Georgia in October 2023 and we are keen to share our enthusiasm for the country with you.
Time: 7.00 to 8.30 pm.
