The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias – Wines of Georgia – Central Region – 2021Ep18
After having previously focused on the east and west wine producing regions of Georgia as well as other topics such as traditional production methods and history, we complete the story with a look at the central region.
Noel Brockett, sales and operations manager for Georgian Wine House, a leading importer of Georgian wines returns to the show. He was our guest on the first episode focusing on the east and the country’s wine producing history. An amazing history that stretches over 8,000 years!
In addition to discussing the wines of the central region, we touch on the area’s cuisine and winemaking landscape. Also, we talk about some future considerations and concepts for Georgian wine and its industry moving forward.
Of course, we sample some truly terrific wines and let you know how they represent such tremendous quality, unique character, and a great value. Check out Wines of Georgia for more!
