Now... this is a controversial thing to say, but the earliest archaeological evidence points strongly towards wine having developed first in Eastern Europe. Georgia has winemaking evidence going back to 8000 BC - more than 10,000 years ago.
Unique grapes, unique ways of making wine... but decimated by what happened under the Soviet Union. How are things recovering now that the countries have opened up?
Here, we find wines being made in the most traditional methods, but now with the benefit of modern science.
One thing is for sure - there are some absolutely amazing stories to be told.
About The Adventurer Series
Our Adventurer Series is perfect for people who feel they know their way around a wine shop, but want to take the next step and explore the differences a great winemaker can have on a wine, learn about lesser-known grapes and find the hidden value around the world.
You'll probably already know the common grape varieties and have some favourite regions, but this remains a great fun, approachable course. We'll explain what the different terms you'll find on a label are, how to taste like a pro, and learn how to master a restaurant wine list! We'll also teach you about food pairings and why things work so well together (or don't!)
Based at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust's Level 2/3 point, this is a great way to take your appreciation of wine to the next level, to demystify wine, to build confidence in choosing wines and to discover some incredible new wines that you may never have even considered before.
We'll teach you all about how these wines are made, what makes them special and we'll highlight a few of the things to watch out for in the wine world and you will have a great time too as it's a mix of entertainment and education!
On this advanced level course, we also introduce a winemaking or grape-growing concept every month and talk about it for 5 minutes.
Watch the recording of the tasting at your own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
