Representatives attended a Georgian wine masterclass, which was held by famous British journalist and wine writer, Andrew Jefford.

 I’ve been working in the field of wine-making for 30 years. I discovered Georgian wine six years ago. Both traditional and classic Georgian wines are excellent for me. Qvevri-made (Qvevri is a traditional Georgian egg-shaped vessel, that is used for making, ageing and storing the wine) wine is always a novelty, different, diverse, unique, something you cannot taste elsewhere. I’m happy that I had the opportunity to taste and present the unique taste of Georgian wines to others today”, said Jefford.

For over 20 years the international wine fair VinExpo has brought together wine and spirits industry professionals from about 50 countries across the world.
