A Wheel of Taste to find your favourite Georgian wine.
Navigating Georgian grape varieties, with sometimes unpronounceable names, can be a challenge. To help you find the best match, Sarah Abbott MW has created a “wheel of taste” that will help you find the Georgian “equivalent” based on your tastes in popular European wines.
Last but not least, you will discover all 525 endogenous grapes varieties and learn which one was Stalin’s favourite.
This e-book will prove itself a useful guide to whomever is willing to explore unusual tastes of a country so close and yet so different to Europe.
