Weird Wines of the World - Wine of Georgia
Georgia has one of the world's oldest and most vibrant wine cultures where winemakers harness an 8,000-year national heritage to produce some of the world's most unique and distinctive fine wines.
Georgia has struck a chord with worldwide fans of natural and organic wines too. It's famous method of making wine in buried clay vessels, known as qvevri, is now UNESCO recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage . A real claim to fame for Georgia. At harvest trodden grapes, skins and stalks are deposited in these vessels which are buried deep in the ground and left to their own devices, producing wines of real character.
During this one off tasting we will try some of the wonderful, and unique wines Georgia has to offer, with such unpronounceable varieties such as Goruli Mtsvane (very rare, challenging but highly rewarding) , Rkatsiteli (a crisp white - what Chardonnay is for California, this grape is to Georgia.) and Saperavi (deeply coloured, fiery long lived reds with a great potential for aging) its sure to be a tasting not to be missed.
Oh and did anyone mention Orange Wine? We'll be sure to taste and talk about that too!
Tasting notes and some cheese and crackers to nibble on are provided.
Great value at £27.50 for a chance to try something different.
