Georgian wine is becoming easier to find across the UK, and wherever you live, you are likely to pick up a bottle in your independent wine shop, and in national retailers. So it’s a great time for us to share a few posts on the Georgian wines now available to buy by the bottle from a range of retaiers.
Discover the world of Georgian wine in the UK with unique offerings like the Teliani Valley Saperavi, a smooth and fruity red, and the aromatic amber Tbilvino Qvevris Rkatsiteli. Teliani Valley Saperavi is available from Noble Green in south London, and in Swansea from Cheers Wine Merchants. Majestic offers Tbilvino’s award-winning Qvevris Rkatsiteli in many of its 200 stores across the UK. These wines, which retail at less than £15, are an accessible way to discovery Georgia’s ancient grape varieties and unique winemaking traditions.
The Saperavi, with its deep colour and rich berry flavors, pairs beautifully with red meats. The Rkatsiteli, on the other hand, is perfect for goats and soft-rind cheese, or with spiced roast chicken, such as this take on Chicken Marbella, chicken thighs cooked with dates and olives. Embrace these distinctive wines for a taste of Georgia’s winemaking heritage that can grace the modern table.
