Georgian wine will also participate in second, bigger international event, which will take place from 2nd to 3rd February. This is an international exhibition of natural wines “La Dive Bouteille”, an event which is held every year, one month after new year, in Saumur. Here a large family of winemakers and wine appreciators gathers. Georgian qvevri wine has already found its place. This is clearly demonstrated on the official website of the event: “This family becomes larger every year and unites all – motivated young people, comparatively forgotten winemakers, who may find American uncles, African cousins, Georgian ancestors or Italian brothers”.
This year “La Dive Bouteille” will see the premier of Phlippe Gasnier’s documentary “Origins of Winemaking”. The movie is about ancient tradition of winemaking in Georgia and Georgian and French winemakers using qvevri wine technology.
