Georgian Wine Grand Tasting

The grand tasting of Georgian wines took place in the ballroom at the Marriott Hotel in Tbilisi, Georgia. Sarah Abbot introduced the wine tasting session. The selected wines were prepared by Shalva Khetusuriani, President of Georgian Sommelier Association. Shalva and Sarah commented about the wines during the tasting.

What is now becoming traditional, my tasting notes for conference tastings are written as haikus.
