A map of viticulture and winemaking will be placed in the museum, on which the grape varieties common in Shida Kartli will be recorded. Also, a collection of old Georgian traditional glasses and visuals of the wine aging process from 0 to 25 years and more will be presented. The museum will be fully adapted for disabled people. The guests who come to the place will have the opportunity to attend Georgian wine and cuisine master classes", says the representative of "Shida Kartli Viticulture and Winemaking Museum", Davit Bochorishvili.

We wish success to the team in the implementation of the project. And we will continue to actively promote similar projects in the future," said Nino Aptsiauri, head of the corporate sales sector of the Bank of Georgia.
