Georgia the Birthplace of Wine


Georgia is unquestionably the birthplace of wine. Grape seeds have been found in Caucasian tombs 7000 years old, along with wine implements such as clay vessels, nowhere else in the world is their evidence of viniculture so old. Indeed the word "wine" has been traced to our Georgian word g'vino, which has been in use for far longer than most modern languages have existed. Indeed there is no country where wine is more revered and a wine culture so developed and cherished.

Incredibly there are over 500 indigenous species of grape (most used for wine) far more than anywhere else, most of them still completely unknown to the rest of the world. Here you can taste wildly unique varieties of wine in a vast array of subtle flavour differences.
