Georgia is one of, if not the oldest place in the world where wine has been made. For 8,000 years they’ve continually produced wine within their borders making for a fascinating crossroads of viticulture. A storied past, being one of the republics of the USSR, this mountainous country on the Black Sea is finally getting recognition for its unique and wonderful wines.
With their own native grapes including Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, Chinuri, Aladasturi, Krakhuna, Kisi, and over 500 more, they make wines both in the “European method” of barrel and tank aging as well as the ancient method of amphora aging that they call “kvevri“.
This first edition has extensive profiles for the wine producers with GPS coordinates, full color photos, maps, suggested itineraries, and tasting notes for the wines making it the most essential book for planning your own wine tour of the region.
