Explore the viticulture of the country of Georgia, the Cradle of Wine, where wine-making traditions go back more than 8000 years, and today there are over 500 distinct grape varietals still grown. Join us to taste through a tremendous lineup of diverse bottles of white, amber, rose, red, and dessert wine, from high quality producers using both European and traditional local methods.
The evening will feature wines from the portfolio of an exciting new Massachusetts-based boutique importer focused exclusively on the country, Georgian Toast, and takes place in the swanky setting of one of the hot new galleries of Boston's South End, Matter and Light Fine Art Gallery. Food pairings, including some authentic to the region, will be provided. All ticketholders receive a tasting glass that is theirs to keep.
NOTA BENE: these are not your grandfather's Georgian wines (you know, semi-sweet Soviet-style). Join us to experience the real deal: fine expressions of indigenous varietals (most notably Rkatsitelli and Saperavi), some from old vines, some organic or bio-dynamic, selected for their excellence from smaller, quality-focused producers.
Regular tickets include tasting 7-9 pm. VIP Tickets include a special pre-tasting 6-7 pm featuring additional hard-to-find wines and hors d'oeuvres, and a gift of a bottle of wine (choice of white or red, retail value up to $20) to take home.
This event is a fundraiser and social event for the non-profit organization, Ballets Russes Arts Initiative. Proceeds will go to support the development of arts programming connecting the US with the post-Soviet region.
