"It was the very first exhibition abroad where I presented wine produced by my company. It was quite exciting experience for me, since many experts, representatives of press, importers, and distributors were present at the exhibition.

While French and Italian wines are the leaders on British market, we should introduce our country and Georgian wine to the international consumers in order to attract their interest. I think we managed to present Georgian natural wine at best; many people gathered around Georgian stand and expressed their interest.

Additionally, we exchanged our contact details with many experienced people in this industry, and now we waiting for their response.

By doing Georgian business we are increasing awareness about our small country throughout the world", - Says Beka Jimsheladze, one of the participants of the exhibition and founder of the Georgian wine company Vellino.

"While a seemingly new trend, orange wine is ancient – as the country of Georgia, with its claim to 8000 vintages, can attest. Believed to be the birthplace of wine, this tiny country in the foothills of the Caucasus, wedged between Russia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Armenia, has been making wine in the same way for thousands of years using large clay pots buried deep underground. Wine is a huge part of daily life there and most people know someone who grows grapes and makes wine at home.

While there are of course regional differences in winemaking techniques used across the country, what they don’t do is use a completely different vinification system for whites compared to reds. Instead their whites are made using the whole berry rather than just the run-off juice, since the grape skins, pips and stems impart all sorts of antioxidants, oils, tannins (and of course pigment), that help protect the young, fermenting juice from oxidation", - RAW WINE website reports about Georgian wine.
