Georgians love to celebrate their wine, and they love to party. Every city and village in Georgia has some form of wine festival, either to celebrate the release of the new wine in Spring, or the gathering in of bountiful harvest in September.
This year, we’re bringing a little bit of Georgian wine festival action to the UK. 2018 has been an amazing year for Georgian wine in the UK, with more and more wines now available across the country, in restaurants and wine shops.
Just 3 years ago, Georgian wine (and Georgia as a country) was pretty much unknown to all but the geekiest. But with a new focus on exports, and the enthusiastic response of UK wine buyers and sommeliers, and the mainstream coverage of Georgia as an amazing tourist destination, that has changed. And, in true Georgian style, it has changed quickly.
The Georgian Wine Festival is a series of tastings, supras and promotions running through the Autumn. The full program will be published soon. In the meantime, please email [email protected] for more information, and to be added to the mailing list.
