As always, the New Wine Festival attendance is free of charge.

New Wine Festival 2022 is delighted to offer the participants and guests to taste hundreds of new wines of the last harvest (2021), to actually meet the makers of these wines and make memories of new taste discoveries to cherish. The main idea of the New Wine Festival is to promote Georgian traditional Qvevri (pitcher) wine, discover new varieties and places, raise the level of wine education in Georgia and improve consumer culture.

With the Festival growing every year since 2010, we witness new family wineries and wine companies emerging, offering us to taste their latest vintage wines. Not just wine producers, but also Georgian and international wine professionals, wine writers, wine bars, restaurants and aficionados are looking forward to the New Wine Festival. By tradition, world-renowned wine masters, sommeliers, importers and wine writers save the date for the New Wine Festival, as they get ready to encounter the Georgian wines.

This year's New Wine Festival is ready to welcome all Georgian wine enthusiasts in Mtatsminda Park. On May 14, from 11:00 to 18:00, large wine companies from different parts of Georgia, medium and small wineries, along with family wineries will treat the Festival guests with the best wines of the last harvest (2021).

The perk of the New Wine Festival is the diversity and discovery of new flavors. Also, by meeting the winemakers in person, we can learn more about the wines we taste and like. The New Wine Festival 2022 will kick off with a traditional Qvevri opening ceremony, accompanied by a song Mravaljamieri. By tradition, this Qvevri keeps the best wine made in a family cellar specially selected by the Wine Club. The doors of the Festival are open to all guests, who are invited to enjoy good music and fun program, and also get a chance to win barrels full of the best wine in the lottery, among other enjoyable things to do. Terms of participation in the Festival will be announced on March 14 for family wineries and March 15 for wine companies.
