by Keto Ninidze

29.04.2015. The selection process of family wineries for New Wine Festival is over. An unprecedented number of wineries will take part in the festival this year. 55 winemakers will represent 72 varieties of wine from Kakheti, Kartli, Imereti and Racha regions, see the list below.

On April 25, in the village Chardakhi of Mtskheta district, "Georgian Wine Club" organized wine tasting to select family wineries. A committee consisting of 11 people which was composed of enologists, winemakers, winegrowers, writers and wine enthusiasts, gave positive feedback to most of wines out of 110 registered ones. The committee members were adviser of the chairman of National Wine Agency, Goga Tevzadze, president of the Wine Club, Malkhaz Kharbedia, director of New Wine Festival,  Iago Bitarishvili, enologists - Kakha Tchotiashvili, Nikoloz Natroshvili, Vano Shiukashvili, and Mikheil Meskhi, journalist and wine writer – Aleko Tskitishvili, wine club members and wine enthusiasts - Vano Stefanashvili and Avtandil Kobakhidze.

President of the Georgian Wine Club Malkhaz Kharbedia notes that quality of wine submitted this year is higher compared to wine samples of last year. In addition, more and more people apply traditional qvevri method of winemaking each year. Georgian Wine Club will organize a special meeting with the producers, who have not passed the selection stage. Individual wines as well as general problems that arose during testing will be discussed.

Most of the registered wines were white, majority of them were Rkatsiteli, Kakhuri Mtsvane, Chinuri and Tsolikouri. From red wines, mostly Saperavi and Tavkveri were presented. Merab Mirtskhulava, Gogi Dvalishvili, Giorgi Revazashvili and others were defined as stable participants of a new wine festival. The wines, which have passed the selection stage, will be presented at the new wine festival, on May 9, in the space for family wineries in the park of Deda Ena.
