Georgian Wine-tasting and an Hour of Georgian Dance Class

  • Rooftop lounge

    95 Wall street, New York, NY (map)

  • There are few things that go together so well like wine, dancing, and conversation.

    It is well known to the wine experts that Georgia is the origin place of wine and vine. The earliest archaeological evidence of wine production yet found has been at sites in Georgia (c. 6000 BC) that leaves us with 8000 years of history and tradition. There are more than 500 hundred species of grapes in Georgia. Around 430 are kept in the privately or state-owned collections. Even the term wine etymologically comes from Georgian word ღვინო (ghvino).

    UNESCO added the ancient traditional Georgian winemaking method using the Kvevri clay jars to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists

    Let's get together, talk and taste this precious drink which played a remarkable role in the history of humanity. After the discussion, we will have an hour of Georgian dancing class (simple beginner steps), which will bring us some joy and fun.

    My little experience with Georgian wines tells me they're great and I want to broaden my experience with them. I know nothing about Georgian dance but expect that it's wonderful so look forward to learning. Thanks for organizing this. It's fun to get in touch a bit with my heritage!
