From Eastern Georgia, this region is renowned for having a climate favorable for viticulture. The vineyard spans 2 hectares of traditional and rare grapes. Been looking for a reason to buy this wine and then I remembered you guys! Went to a Georgian restaurant in Bath Beach. Yes, that is really a neighborhood in Brooklyn, I didn't believe it either. The restaurant was called Georgia. It felt like I was in someone's living room and it took forever and it was worth it. The group of Georgians next to us were throwing back tequila shots with theirs.
I wish I had this wine for that dinner, aromatic and tea tinged, it would have been perfect with our creamy garlicky chicken stew and dumplings.
