With Georgian wine, it is one of, if not the most ancient wines made in the world. For 8,000 years this small country has continually produced wine within their borders making for a fascinating crossroads of viticulture. A storied past, including being one of the republics of the USSR, this band of green valleys and mighty rivers on the Black Sea is finally getting recognition for its unique and wonderful wines.

With their own native grapes including Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, Chinuri, Aladasturi, Krakhuna, Kisi, and over 400 more, they make wines both in the ‘international method’ of barrel and tank aging as well as the ancient method of terracotta pots that they call kvevri.

This comprehensive guide provides detailed profiles of wine producers, along with GPS coordinates, full-colour photos and informative maps. Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or a newcomer, this first edition is an absolute must-have, offering an immersive experience into the world of Georgian wine.

BOOKS FOR WINE LOVERS BY THOSE IN THE KNOW

‘The books that taught me about wine were about places and people. It’s the history and stories about a wine that bring it to life and make it worth talking about.’

– Steven Spurrier
