Georgian Wine & Cheeses Virtual Pairing Event

Our Georgian Wine on My Mind (but grown in the Finger Lakes) Virtual Wine & Cheese Pairing Experience explores three wines from Finger Lakes producers that are made from Georgian varietals. The Georgian Republic, a country at the intersection of Europe and Asia in the Caucasus Mountains, is considered the oldest winemaking region in the world. Indigenous grapes have been cultivated there for 8000 years, with Rkatsiteli and Saperavi recognized as two of the oldest known grape varieties in the world

Over 50 years ago, because of their known cold weather resiliency, these were planted here in the Finger Lakes. Today, there is an increasingly growing regional interest in these varieties, resulting in more cultivated acres planted in the Finger Lakes than anywhere else in the world outside of Georgia.

Join sommelier Laura Winter Falk as she explores three Finger Lakes wines crafted from these ancient varietals by different FLX producers. Taste why there is some much excitement about these wines, discover their fascinating history and learn about their cultural traditions in winemaking. Each wine will also be paired with classic Georgian cheeses.

Sip, savor, and learn along with Experience! The Finger Lakes owner and certified sommelier, Laura Winter Falk, as she guides you through this specially curated, interactive pairing event featuring:
