Golden Elibo, Festival's awards.
Hundreds of people gathered at Tbilisi’s Open Air Ethnography Museum today and tasted sweet samples of some of Georgia’s best wine, listened to live music and ate fresh food.
Organized by the Wine Club Georgia, the festival was held for the fifth time this year. The annual event offered guests the privilege of tasting a full array of wines from all of Georgia’s leading wine companies, local wine cellars and boutique wines from all regions of Georgia.
As guests sipped on their wine, local musicians from Jazz Quartet IrReSoNic and Folk Ensemble Akhlukhlebi entertained the crowds.
In addition to tasting various Georgian wines, visitors could watch a potter in action and even make their own pottery creation.
While the main feature of the festival was to showcase Georgian wine, various other events were included in today’s celebration, including the awarding of a Golden Elibo (the Wine club's miniature statue) to wine companies who participated in the festival.
A Wine Barrel lottery was also held and the Georgian National Rugby Team was named as "Wine Club Friends 2014".
Entrance was free to today’s festival and was enjoyed by people from all walks of life; young and old, locals and foreigners.
