Women in Wine Expo 2022 - Georgia to Host the First Global Initiative in Europe

Women in Wine Expo is the first global initiative in Europe to appear on the world map in 2019, bringing together professional winemakers from the East and West.

Women in Wine Expo 2022 (WIWE) will host professional winemakers on May 4-6 at Lopota Lake Resort & Spa.

Women from the wine industry will gather in Kakheti, one of the most important wine-producing regions in the history of winemaking, for the development of the field.

The project will involve women from around the world, including Armenia, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, and more.

It should be noted that specially invited translators will take part in the project, with the help of which Georgian speakers will be able to speak their native language, and at the same time, international speakers will be able to translate each of their speeches into the language of their choice.

The main theme of the 2022 Women in Wine Expo will be women's entrepreneurship in the wine industry. The stage will be dedicated to young women leaders from Georgia, Armenia, and South Africa, who will talk about important topics such as trends in the field, customer experience, business development, statistics, and more.

GIZ Georgia will host a practical workshop at the Women in Wine Expo. In addition, there will be a panel discussion on wine tourism opportunities for local and regional businesses.

It should be noted that the Georgian Tasting Commission will host a Georgian wine master class, within the framework of which the invited guests will taste 6-8 types of Georgian wine selected according to different criteria.

The wine will be pre-selected by a specially staffed commission: Ana Godabrelidze, David Chuchua, and Giorgi Samanishvili. After the master class, an exhibition will be held in which Georgian women will take part. Women winemakers will be able to present wine to the general public and thus popularize their work.
