British wine witers explore Georgian wine

22.09.2017 (Hvino News) A group of British wine writers headed by Sarah Abbott, Master of Wine, has recently visited Georgia.

The group, which included Miles Willis, Martin Lam, David Williams, Emma Diggory, Kate Clarke, Madeleine Waters, had the opportunity to taste wines of the following companies: Telavi Wine Cellar, GWS, Mukado Wines, Alaverdi Monastery Cellar, Vita Vinea, Papari Valley, Tchotiashvili Family Vineyards, Pheasant's Tears. Before going to Kakheti, Sarah Abbott met the representatives of Georgian wine companies in Tbilisi, talking about the pricing policy, labeling of wines,  quality issues.

“A group of wine professionals from the UK is visiting Georgia. This visit is special, as the UK market is prominent for Georgian wine export. The entry and development on  this market is a priority for Georgian wine. After the visit, the guests will write abut Georgian wine culture, that will further promote Georgian wine awareness growth in the UK”- said Giorgi Samanishvili, head of National Wine Agency, which cooperated with Sarah Abbott's “Swirl Wine Group” as local marketing contractor for Georgian wine promotion in the UK.

“We've had a really fantastic and exiting visit, we wanted to show our party every aspect of Georgian wine, the development, existing and potential. So we have seen producers working with tiny vineyards and qvevri, we have seen producers who are creating much bigger business plans for being able to produce world class and international Georgian wine brands, we've seen established producers and new, young upcoming producers, and all of these is of great interest to this party and to the whole of the UK market. I wanted to show a real diversity and breath the energy of Georgian wine, which I think is one of the most exiting wine origins in the world”- commented Sarah Abbott.
