Want to learn about the origins of winemaking?This beautiful and affordable country has many other attractions for both budget and sophisticated travelers. There are 1,000-year-old churches, wild mountains offering winter and summer splendor, and coastal resorts on the Black Sea. While visiting Georgia to research a book about the origins of wine, I kept having to choose between wine experiences and other tempting options.Georgian architecture, food, wine and music is a multiethnic mix of East and West. Archaeological sites show that Georgians began making wine at least 5,000 years before the French.You can experience and taste some of the wine history throughout the Georgian countryside.Georgia has hundreds of native wine grape varieties, including kisi, mtsvane, rkatsiteli and saperavi. Try the unfiltered and natural golden (or orange) wine style for a sense of how wine was first made thousands of years ago.
