Saperavi from Georgia & Republica Moldova (Bucuresti)

Saperavi from Georgia & Republica Moldova (Bucuresti)

On November 15th, 2023, I invite you to the tasting of "Saperavi from Georgia & the Republic of Moldova".

Saperavi is a black grape variety originating in Georgia, the place where wine first appeared in the world, around 5000 BC. In translation, "Saperavi" means "paint" and, with good reason, the wines of this variety are an unmistakable deep red. Kind of like a paint 🙂 Unlike other red varieties, Saperavi has slightly pinkish grape flesh, which is very rare in a grape (usually red grapes have a red skin, but the grape flesh is white - this is the reason why you can make white wine from red grapes; wine always takes its color from the skin).

Because Georgia is not the only country that still grows the Saperavi variety today, the tasting will include wines from 2 countries: Georgia and the Republic of Moldova and will be a "blind" tasting.

If you have never participated in a blind wine tasting before, you will have a very interesting experience. To begin with, the bottles will be covered, you will taste the wines without seeing the labels, and only then, after analyzing the differences between color, smell and taste, will you find out which wines it is, one by one.

You will have the opportunity to compare 6 wines made from Saperavi grapes: 3 from Georgia and 3 from the Republic of Moldova.

This time we were joined at the event by  Baroque Books & Arts publishing house, which has been publishing books about wine in the "In Vino Veritas" collection for several years now. Thus, at the tasting on November 15th, you will have the opportunity to learn a few things about one of the recently published books and one of the people present will have the opportunity to go home with this book. Come to the event and maybe you'll be the lucky one to go home with a wine book.
