Ancient author of the Argonautica, Apollonius of Rhodes attributes Georgia with legends, ceremonies and traditions that posses the deepest appreciation for wine making in his epic poem. Thousands of years of knowledge, tradition and excellence have contributed to the development of unique and exciting grape varieties from which Georgian wines are made. Wine and food should complement each other not battle against each other. When pairing food and wine, the goal should be an ideal balance. A good match will bring out the nuances and enhance the flavors and unique characteristics of both. To taste the wine born in this land of warriors and poets, in a valley guarded by the mighty Caucasus range, located at the cross-roads of the East and West, is like a pleasant stroll through history!
