Family Wineries for New Wine Festival 2018: Results of Wine Tasting Are Out

Wine companies and family wineries enrolled for the New Wine Festival from February 21, 2018 through April 5, 2018.

The Festival jury received 422 wines made by 236 family wineries in Kakheti, Kartli, Imereti, Guria, Samegrelo, Racha-Lechkhumi and Samtskhe-Javakheti regions.

Traditionally, the festival management accepted 100 family wineries. However, the high level of their interest and very promising results of the wine tasting enabled the Wine Club to admit as many as 131 family wineries to this year’s Festival.

The Wine Tasting Committee appointed by the Wine Club, consisting of the members of the State Wine Tasting Commission, as well as wine professionals and experts, conducted series of wine tasting sessions at the G.Vino Wine Bar, the partner of the New Wine Festival.

The Committee used the following appraisal system: appearance 0-2 points, aroma 0-4 points and flavor 0-4 points. The wine receiving top points in all categories would get the total of 10 points. 

As the Wine Tasting Committee of the Georgian Wine Club wanted to give equal opportunities to the family wineries from all regions of Georgia, they decided to assign different passing points to each region. These were as follows:

Kakheti - 7 points

Kartli - 6 points

Imereti – 6 points

Samegrelo – 6 points

Guria – 6 points

Racha-Lechkhumi – 6 points

Adjara – 5 points

Samtskhe-Javakheti – 4 points

The Wine Club wishes success to the wineries, whose total points were below the passing quota. Congratulations! You did really well! The competition was high and the Wine Tasting Committee had a difficult task picking the best ones out of the abundance of excellent wines. As the space for the wine festival is limited, the Wine Club tried its best to increase the number of family wineries to the optimal number. Instead of 100, 131 family wineries will present their wines at the Festival this year.

Kakheti tops the list with 57 wineries, followed by Kartli - 28 and Imereti with 22 wineries.  Racha-Lechkhumi has 14 wineries, Guria has 4, Samegrelo – 2. Adjara presents 3 wineries to the Festival, and Samtskhe-Javakheti is represented by 1 winery.

The Wine Club proudly presents the family wineries to participate in the New Wine Festival 2018:
