The Georgian Wine Association is our gracious host and sponsor of a five day wine extravaganza! I’ll be traveling with several other EWBC members from Izmir, Turkey on Monday, November 12 to Tbilisi, Georgia. Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia.
Our trip will take us to the Kartli and Kakheti regions, considered heart of Georgian winemaking. There we will see how an Qvevri wine is made, a tradition that has been preserved over thousands of years producing wines of unique character and style.
I’ve heard mention that Georgian wine has strong health benefits in terms of longetivity. People have been known to live well past 100 years. I’ll have in inquire while I’m there and check it out!
Stay tuned to future posts — where I’ll be sharing my Georgian experiences!
