“Georgian wine is about discovery. There are the intellectual, unusual Qvevri wines and the more approachable noble varieties like Saperavi and Rkatsiteli that I think a lot of Americans will love.They are ancient yet new and offer something for everyone. The incredible potential for Georgian wine has barely been tapped into here in the US.”
