France’s city of Bordeaux declared 2017 as the year of Georgia. According to the city administration the decision was made due to the fact Georgia is not only the winemaking country, but also possesses the ancient winemaking tradition. The French city itself is considered to be the center of wine civilization. In July-August of 2017 Georgia, as an honored guest will present an exhibition named Vineyard-Georgia. Corresponding agreement has already been signed between Georgia’s Agriculture Minister Otar Danelia and the
Head of Foundation for Wine Culture. As a reminder UNESCO included the traditional Georgian method of making wine in kvevri (Georgian clay vessel) to its list of intangible cultural heritage.
