Homeland of wine among the best wine countries of 2020? How wonderful that Georgia ended up in this list, named by Forbes. Georgian wine was named among the classic regions (France, Italy…), New Zealand, U.S., Spain, Austria, Germany, Lebanon… No surprise, though – because we have more than 8000 years history of winemaking. But if you’re looking for one more reason to travel to Georgia in 2020, here’s the one. Wine tours here are amazing.
Want to know what winemakers and sommeliers are looking for this year, according to Forbes?
I would love to share with you the short note from wine writer and Co-founder of sommelier retreat company TEXSOM James Tidwell:
“I am looking forward to visiting Georgia (the country), Armenia, Greece, and Israel in 2020 and plan to be drinking those wines, plus examples from Lebanon and Turkey as an exploration of ancient grape varieties, the origins of wine culture, and exciting new developments. While not limited to these countries, my explorations in 2020 will be centered around these areas that have some of the longest histories of wine production, yet some of the most modern wine industries. I find the dichotomy fascinating, and feel that there is enormous potential still for each of these countries.”
Georgian wine is in the centre of interests for french Meilleur Ouvrier, Managing Partner at Racines NY:
“In 2020, I am looking to taste more of the forgotten grapes that are now being rediscovered and used as alternatives to combat the changes in climatic cycles. It is a trove of beautiful expressions, a lot I’ve never experienced before — and, for sure, a window to the past and the future: Oeillade (Languedoc), Meskhuri (Georgia), Verdesse (Savoie & Ain), Bouchalès (Bordeaux), Castets (Bordeaux), Diolle (Switzerland)…”
Timeless impressions, unforgettable adventures are awaiting you in the homeland of wine. Let me organize the tour to Georgia for you, so you could explore the whole beauty of this tradition.
