The Buyer is the UK’s premier online magazine for on-trade wine and drinks analysis, recommendations, news and trends. Ahead of a landmark tasting on June 15th this week, The Buyer’s editor, Richard Siddle, interviews Sarah Abbott MW about the potential for Georgian wine in the premium UK on-trade:
“The wine trade and consumers alike are increasingly looking for wines with history, tradition and a genuine back story. Well, they don’t get much more authentic than wines from Georgia. It might have been making wines for centuries, but it has only been in the last few years that its unique Qveri-style wines are capturing the imagination of our wine buyers and adventurous wine drinkers. Ahead of its annual tasting on Thursday Sarah Abbott MW looks at why Georgian wines are so relevant for the premium on-trade.
Buyers will get the chance to see at this week’s London tasting how Georgia is combining modern winemaking methods with its traditional ways to produce wines that can have really make a difference to your wine lists.”
