Two wines from Georgia and one from Armenia are featured in a review published by British newspaper The Guardian, authored by wine expert David Williams.
Georgia and Armenia, two neighboring Christian nations with ancient wine-making traditions, are known for a long-time dispute over priority in being the world's "cradle of wine" (read, for instance: Armenia and Georgia disagree over slogan "Cradle of Wine".)
This is why it is unusual to see publications which put wines produced in two countries together. However, from a Western European perspective Georgia and Armenia are often seen as countries with similar cultural and historical background.
For his "wines of the week" review David Williams selected Armenian Zorah Karasi Noir (the most expensive one: £22) and two Georgian wines: Iago's Chinuri (£16.65) and Khareba Saperavi (£10). The author is asking: "What kind of wine were they making 5,000 years ago? These wines may not get close, but they do hint at the colourful and unique history of winemaking in this part of the world".
