Part travel narrative and part wine guide, this book will take the readers on a tasting tour through the wine regions in the three countries, recommend the best wines each place has to offer, provide anecdotal insights into the wine culture of each country, and discuss the history of ancient winemaking based on archeological evidence.
Turkey, Armenia, and Georgia all claim to be the birthplace of wine. “There are many arguments about the origin of wine; from an archaeological perspective, the signs point to about 8,000 years ago in the Transcaucasia —which includes present - day Armenia, Georgia, and Turkey”, - the authors point out. Some of those claims are supported by archaeological ﬁndings and some by anecdotal evidence. However, this book isn’t about determining the birthplace of wine, but rather the goal is to capture the ethos of a wine region—that is the connection between wine, people, and place.
