We are thankful to Gerard for his encouraging words about Saperavi World Prize:
“Georgian wines are loved and admired by many Sommeliers and wine lovers around the world.
It is really wonderful that there is now a special event for Saperavi a grape so strongly associated with Georgia and its wines.
I would like to wish great success to this very exciting event.”
