Georgian Rkatsiteli wine hits the "New York Times" list of wines

25.01.2015. (Hvino News). The New York Times Food Section has included Georgian Rkatsiteli wine in the recently-published list of 20 best wines for under $20, authored by Tony Cenicola. The list, entitled "Worth the Search", starts with:
The great intersection of quality and value in wine occurs in the $15- to $25-a-bottle range. Here, you can find wines that are not merely sound or decent but fascinating, without breaking the bank.
For the first time NYT's "20 Wines for Under $20" includes Georgian wine Pheasant’s Tears Kakheti Rkatsiteli 2011 (price $19). The description reads:
This unusual wine, made from the ancient rkatsiteli grape, comes from the republic of Georgia, a cradle of winemaking history. It is fermented and aged in a qvevri, a traditional clay vessel lined with beeswax and buried in the earth. The result is a deep amber wine with a raspy texture, steely and full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of apples, herbs and nuts. 
This is the second mention of Georgian wines in NYT during January. Earlier this month The New York Times in its Travel section has published "52 Places to Go in 2015", including Georgia at 25th place, and specially mentioning several wineries and other wine-related destinations. Hvino News reported this important news here.

We have observed an unprecedented growth of Georgian wines' popularity in the leading U.S. mass medias since beginning of 2015.

Earlier this month Hvino News reported that Forbes Magazine included the Georgian wines in its top wines list, see "Forbes" includes Georgian wines in its "9 Best Wines and Spirits to Start Drinking in 2015". In addition to coverage by NYT and Forbes, Voice of America published a video clip entitled "Georgian Wines Make Forbes List of 'Best to Drink in 2015', see here. This highly successful media campaign helps to raise much-deserved awareness of Georgian wines in USA and internationally.
