Diplomatic corps accredited in France, representatives from the French Chamber of Agriculture and UNESCO, professional sommeliers, oenologists, wine journalists and bloggers attended the Georgian wine tasting event.
The event also included a photo exhibition about Georgian wine culture captured by French photographers in the 19th Century.
France, a country world famous for its own wine making traditions, has increased its imports of Georgian wine.
Last year Georgia exported 38,000 bottles of wine to France. This was 190 percent more than in 2014.
Georgia’s main export product to France was wine, said the Georgian National Wine Agency.
