- John Wurdeman is a widely known and respected ambassador for Georgian wine and culture. John’s winery Pheasant’s Tears is located two hours from the country’s capital in the highly regarded PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) Manavi region of Kakheti.
- Also from Kakheti is Niki Antadze. He farms his vineyards, which are situated at 750m above sea level on alluvial soils rich in limestone, as naturally as possible. He uses no chemicals in his marani and only traditional techniques to produce a variety of qvevri styles from the Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane and Saperavi grapes. He owns around 3 hectares and has one particularly old plot of vines (around a hundred years old).
- Ramaz Nikoladze’s Wine Cellar, a small family winery, is located in Imereti, in Western Georgia near the city of Kutaisi. This region is a lot cooler than eastern Georgia, and it is possible to produce low alcohol, fresh, light and pure wines.
- Shota Lagazidze is a young winemaker from Tusheti, a mountainous region of the country. He has his own label called ‘Lagazi’ and his mission is to revive forgotten species of Georgian grapes.
Alongside the wines from these four will be a menu of Georgian food, served in a communal style throughout the afternoon.
There’s a reason why the gastronomic offerings of this small country are on the radar – join us on the 11th to see why!
