June 2016 is Georgian Wine Month in USA

June has been declared as Georgian wine month in the US.

Georgia’s National Wine Agency is sponsoring a variety of events in the USA throughout the month. Branching out from 2014’s inaugural tasting in New York, and first Georgian Wine Month held in October 2016, this year’s tour also includes New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC.

Attendees will have the opportunity to taste an array of Georgia’s indigenous grapes, and to compare these varieties produced in both modern and traditional (“qvevri”) production styles.

Wines from all of Georgia’s leading producers, both big and small, will be poured, including several wineries making their debut appearance.

Each tasting will be preceded by a limited-seating seminar and tutored tasting on Georgian wine & wine culture. Accredited press and trade only.
