Another important event focusing on Georgian winemaking at Boston Wine Expo is the Seminar The Republic of Georgia: Wines from Ancient Vines, scheduled for February 15. The Seminar is to be conducted by wine expert Lisa Granik, Master of Wine. Ms. Granik is involved in development of marketing strategy of the Georgian wine, as one of international experts cooperating with Georgia's National Wine Agency.
Boston Wine Expo program reads: "Lisa Granik MW, whose knowledge and experience of Georgia date back to the 1980s, will conduct a fascinating guided tasting seminar, offering a range of eight wines. These range from wines made by the millennia-old qvevri method, in which a clay vessel is used to ferment and store wine, to wines made with native varieties in an accessible contemporary style. This is an extraordinary opportunity to discover unfamiliar and delicious wines made from some of Georgia’s 500 indigenous varieties, using both traditional and modern methods ... In Georgia, wine is central to life, culture and religious symbolism: the original Georgian Cross is said to be composed of grapevines".
