6.30pm start

Republic of Georgia qvevri winemaking

A rare chance to discover the wines of The Republic of Georgia and its winemaking history and traditions. 

Learn about Georgia's wine regions, its treasure trove of indigenous grapes, intense wine culture reflected in its architecture and songs - and the unusual 'qvevri' winemaking technique in this cradle of wine civilisation.

This country can claim over 8,000 years of winemaking history - but their current wine industry is very young. 

Georgia has resurrected itself in the last twenty five years into a fascinatingly diverse wine country with 55,000 hectares of vineyards and a burgeoning number of small wine producers (now 1,500) - and some are now producing very impressive wines. 

These wines are now becoming more available, Georgian wines exports to the UK in 2020 increased by 200%.  This tasting offers a rare opportunity to learn about this remote wine country, its diverse regions and culture - to help you enjoy the wines even more.

Kakheti wine region Republic of Georgia online tasting

For this tasting, we have carefully selected a fine 4 bottle (75cl bt) tasting pack (which normally sells at £118) from four different Kakheti producers.  Two qvevri whites from youthful 2019 and mature 2012 will make a fascinating comparison from different producers - followed by two superb reds from the Saperavi grape which is proving so successful in modern-day Georgia. 

Please note there are a limited number of tasting packs available.

The wines can be delivered anywhere on the UK mainland - and delivery is included in the price (small additional charge for Scottish highlands and islands).

This would make a fun educational gift for yourself, friends, family, colleagues or clients.

Once you have signed up to join the tasting, Rose will email you the tasting mat and tasting sheet to print off for each session - with simple instructions on how to prepare the wines with cheese matching suggestions (optional).

The aim is to have fun whilst learning about wine in the safety of your own home

PLEASE NOTE: You only need to purchase one place/tasting pack per household - you can invite as many people as you wish to join - but please share the same screen.
