Chinuri wine of a Georgian winemaker, Iago Bitarishvili has made its way to the list of London’s famous Ritz hotel menu. Bitarishvili’s Chinuri is among 150 new wines and is available by the glass, The Drink Business website informs.

“In Georgia, there are some producers that do international grapes, but Chinuri is only from there,” Ritz’s sommelier, Giovanni Ferlito said.

As for the question, how English customers are going to receive Georgian orange wine, Ferlito said that he had been impressed by both the knowledge and open-mindedness about wine among English people:

“When
I arrived in England, I was actually very impressed by the general knowledge in wines by English people compared to Italians, compared to French. Italians only know Italian wines. If you’re Sicilian, you only drink Sicilian wines.

“In France it is the same. They only know about French wines. If they are in Burgundy they are only drinking Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. If you bring them a bottle of Bordeaux they will say, ‘I am not drinking that!’.

“In England it is different, not being a [major] wine producing country, people are so open-minded.”

The list of 150 new wines for Ritz also includes indigenous varieties from regions including Languedoc, Jura, Corsica, Etna, Slovakia and Santorini.
