November 17 from 15.00 to 17.00
An 8000-Year-Old Wine Tradition
At the Embassy of Georgia
Nestled in the Caucasian mountains, Georgia has an 8000-year-old wine-making tradition that is in the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Even today, wine is made, aged and stored underground in qvevri – large egg-shaped, beeswax-lined earthen jars. Georgia’s ancient wine-making heritage reveals much about the grape fermentation techniques that have endured through the millennia. It also shows that stone age people did not live a hand-to-mouth existence, cutting stones, hunting animals and making bone tools. They were inventive about making merry!
To learn more about this ancient tradition and to taste Georgian wine, the Ambassador of Georgia Maia Kipshidze kindly invites you to her embassy on Wednesday November 17 at 15:00. Wine connoisseurs will also be present.
Maximum number of participants: 15
