Event description

Description

The interest in Georgian wine is booming, as quality soars, availability increases, and press coverage intensifies. Sales of Georgian wine to the UK grew by 30% in 2018, with both established large and new artisan wine-makers securing new UK importers. But there is still a lot of unsigned talent in Georgian wine.

This walk-around tasting in Bristol features a wide range of producers and wines, from artisan, 'qvevri' orange wine to some irresistably enjoyable Saperavi - called "Georgia's answer to Malbec".

The walk-around tasting runs from 1pm to 4pm.

In addition, there is a tutored masterclass on Georgian Wine, led by Sarah Abbott MW, running from 10:30am-12:00.

To register for the walk-around tasting and/or masterclass, please select from the ticket types below.

We appreciate all interest in Georgian wine. Please note that places are limited. We thank you for your understanding if we do contact you to request further trade or press credentials.
