We have a few spaces remaining for the latest webinar in the Swirl in The Cloud series featuring Georgian Wines.
The next event is a webinar on 7th August at 6pm BST.
Open to all, and not just wine professionals, this webinar is a broad introduction to Georgian wine culture and wines, covering everything you need to get your head around the basics of this fascinating wine country. From how to pronounce, and recognise, Georgian wine names and grape varieties, to what to drink them with. The webinar is free to attend, and guests can choose to order tasting packs of Georgian wine from several UK wine merchants who are now offering a selection of Georgian wines.
