Often hailed as the birthplace of wine, Georgia boasts a rich winemaking legacy, evidenced by the discovery of ancient vinous relics like pruning knives and stone presses dating back as far as 8,000 years ago by archaeologists. In 2015, researchers analyzing the residue contained within a vessel found in Georgia, found the remains of grapes and grape seeds. They dated these materials to 6000 BCE, establishing ancient Georgia as the first known location of grape winemaking. Legend has it that soldiers used to embed grapevine into their armor to safeguard their chests in battle, with the belief that if they fell, a vine would sprout from their hearts.

Situated on the same latitude as Tuscany, Georgia boasts comparable territorial conditions ideal for winemaking. The region's abundant diversity in soil, climate, sunlight exposure, and its plethora of indigenous grape varieties contribute to a vast array of wine flavors and aromas. Georgian grapes are distinctive and often exclusive to the region, making them a unique treasure not commonly found elsewhere.

Join us for an evening dedicated to exploring Georgian wine with Andrew and Irena, the proprietors of World's Finest Wines. Experience the flavors of seven exquisite wines as they share insights into the producers and grape varieties. Additionally, Chef Bess Dekyzer and her culinary team will delight you with a tailored four-course meal crafted exclusively for this occasion.
