Georgian Wine Presented in US Cities

Posted By : Georgian Tour/ 201

Georgian wine, one of the major parts of the ancient culture of Georgia, has yet another time moved beyond the borders of its homeland. This time, it has been introduced to wider audiences in the USA, in the cities of New York, Chicago and Boston in particular.

At a presentation given by the top-sommelier Taylor Parsons and attended by Georgian wine producers, local entrepreneurs and media representatives, guests were given an opportunity to taste the wine and listen to a seminar on the modern wine industry.

The National Wine Agency of Georgia, the financial supporter of the event, selected the USA as a strategic and promising market for exporting Georgian wine. 354,000 bottles of wine were exported to the USA in the first half of 2019, which is a 90% increase in comparison with the same time period of the last year.

The presentation in the US cities was organized by the contractor marketing company of the National Wine Agency Marq Energie Consulting.
