Spotlight on Georgia at the Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre in Italy

30.08.2012 (Hvino News). Over 250 farmers, artisans, chefs are participating in the "Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre" this October in Turin, Italy, to showcase the rich food and wine biodiversity of their regions.

Georgian wines will be represented in the general exhibition (by Winery Khareba and other companies) as well as in several specialized workshops, such as workshop "WINES FROM THE BALKANS AND GEORGIA" (Hall F), "a  fascinating journey eastwards to the origins of wine, from Croatia to the Balkans, through Anatolia and finally to Georgia, the mythical homeland of Jason and the Argonauts. You’ll taste red and a white from the Kakheti and Imereti regions of Georgia, from the Slow Food Georgian Wine in Jars Presidium".

Another workshop focusing on Georgian wine will be "IN AMPHORA VERITAS?" (Hall F): "Are wines aged in amphorae a way to fully reveal the terroir or just a fleeting trend? Producing wines with a long maceration on the skins in terracotta containers is an ancient tradition, originally from Georgia, and is becoming an increasingly common winemaking practice. More and more winemakers are trying out the technique, with very interesting results. In this workshop, organized by the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, you’ll taste examples from different countries like Georgia (a Slow Food Presidium), Italy, Austria, Croatia, France and Germany", according to "Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre" official information.
