Georgia is the oldest place in the world that we know of to make wine as archaeological proof has shown the vinification of wine to be ongoing for literally 8,000 vintages. Today, the ancient techniques and grapes are only starting to be rediscovered and the country is a mix of various styles both ancient as well as 19th century and 20th century Soviet.
Through this tasting we'll cover wines produced by larger cellars (literally, "wine factories" in Georgian) as well as micro cellars and we'll taste as well as talk about how wine is made in the ancient clay pots called, 'kvevri' and the effect politics, wars, and 'natural wine' has had upon the country. The talk and tasting will be led by Miquel Hudin whose new book for the country was released just last June and was the recipient of the Geoffrey Roberts Award.
Attendees will taste through 5+ wines which aren't available in Spain and were brought directly from Georgia including:
- Duruji Valley - Rkatsiteli 2014
- Lagvinari - Goruli Mtsvane 2015
- Gogi Dvalishvili - Khidistauri 2016
- Lukasi - No. 10 Family Reserve 2015
- Duruji Valley - Saperavi 2013
They will also receive a copy of the Miquel's book, "Georgia: A guide to the cradle of wine"
