The ancient origins and continued history of winemaking in Georgia will be the focus of an exhibition in south-western France’s wine-rich Bordeaux municipality starting later this month.

Set to run for over three months, the Georgian National Museum (GNM)-organised display Georgia, Cradle of Viticulture will open at the La Cite du Vin venue on July 31.

Major discoveries shedding light on wine production and usage dating back to the Neolithic-era territory of the modern Georgia will serve as the highlight of the event.
