#winechat - from Georgia to America

06.01.2013  (Hvino News).  American web resource Wine Compass reports that its #winechat will reconvene on January 9th with a focus on the birthplace of wine-making - the Republic of Georgia - where archeologists have unearthed viticulture artifacts from 5,000 to 8,000 years old. "Accompanied by the Georgian Wine House, we will discuss kvevri terracota vessels, the popular Rkatsiteli and Saperavi grapes, and counterfeit wines".  Rkatsiteli and Saperavi have migrated to the United States where a handful of wineries cultivate and vinify these grapes.

"We hope to have representatives from Dr. Konstantin Frank's Vinifera Wine Cellars (NY), Standing Stone Vineyards (NY), Horton Vineyards (VA), Tomasello Winery (NJ) and Avanguardia Wines (CA) as well as Castle Hill Cider, who utilize Georgian kvevri terracota fermenting containers in their Keswick Virginia cidery. We are looking forward to seeing everyone online on the 9th - 9PM ET on Twitter", - says Wine Compass.
