American ‘Food&Wine’ magazine to cover Georgian wine

03.05.2018 (Hvino News). The executive wine editor of  Food&Wine magazine Ray Isle and the photographers were visiting Georgia for a week. The leading  US magazine is planning to feature article on Georgian wine culture in October issue.

Last September Ray Isle published article "3 Georgian Wines to Try Now", in which he wrote: "Tucked between Turkey and Russia on the coast of the Black Sea, the small country makes some fascinating wines... where the wines range from bright and crisp 
to downright exotic". He chose 2014 Vinoterra Mtsvane, 2016 Pheasant's Tears Saperavi, and 2014 Orgo Rkatsiteli for his first review.

During the recent tour organised by  National Wine Agency, Ray Isle and the creative team of Food&Wine  magazine visited wine cellars in Georgia’s Kartli and Kakheti regions.

"I have been writing about wine for a long time and it has been a lot of interest in Georgian wine in the past 4-5 years in the US, particularly in the sommelier restaurant community. I have tasted them, but I have never been to the wineries, never been to the country, never met the winemakers before, never been in the vineyards and that's always very important. I hope that people will become aware of Georgian wine and Georgian cuisine and realize how wonderful it is”, - said Ray Isle.

"This is my first time in Georgia and I have discovered a lot. I think the biggest discovery is the people, the culture here is so warm and inviting, open to visitors coming in and learning about Georgia, this is a reason of pride in Georgia. One thing I have learnt is how fun it is to be here. You see that in the toast, in the tradition of caring about guests and inviting them, that does not exist the same way in the US and it's great to be part of it”, he added.

Publishing the article about Georgian wine in Food&Wine  magazine is important for raising awareness of Georgian wine worldwide, as the print edition of the magazine is up to 925,000 copies and followers on social media exceed 2.3 million.
