2018 has been the best year yet for exports of Georgian wine to the UK, and Georgian wine is becoming more readily available. A group of recent importers of Georgian wine to the UK have come together to put on a festival of Georgian wine, on 8th November in London. The focus of the event will be wines made in ‘qvevri’, the ancient and Unesco-recognised method that is uniquely well preserved in Georgia.
The event features wines from some of Georgia’s most acclaimed artisan producers of qvevri wines, including Babaneuris, Vazisubani, Matrobela, Lukasi, Natenadze, and more. The new wines from Artisan Cru will also be poured. This innovative project is run in collaboration with the UK’s top winemaking University, Plumpton, and has seen Georgian qvevri installed in Sussex for the production of wines from Italian grapes.
The evening is open to all, and includes delicious food from Georgian caterers Walnut and Spice, and Georgian music and dance.
Wines will be available to buy on the evening, which runs from 6pm-8:30pm.
Tickets are priced at £32, and must be bought in advance online.
