Description

In the last few years Tbilisi, during the month of May has felt great not just because of the blooming nature and splendid weather, but also because of the New Wine Festival held in the city. It focuses on the wine made from the latest harvests. Spring is considered to be the best time to unseal vessels of wine and bring them out for everyone to taste. The Festival’s venue is changeable, as are the companies or family wineries who showcase their products. The festival is fast gaining popularity with increasing numbers of participants each year. Travellers, bloggers, journalists, winemakers and sommeliers from all around the globe enjoy tasting more than 60 varieties of excellent Georgian wine from the previous harvest. Traditional Georgian barbeques and fresh bread are also available at the festival to try and keep everyone sober. Accompanied by Georgian dances and song performances, the festival lasts the whole weekend.
