Isabelle Legeron is on a quest. The maverick Master of Wine is fighting for authentic wine; wine that is distinct and natural rather than tailored to the international wine mould. Where better to begin her quest than in Georgia; the birthplace of wine?” read the press release distributed to over a hundred guests at the Soho Hotel in London on Monday 11th April. The event, organized by Travel Channel with the support of the British Georgian Chamber of Commerce BGCC, saw the launch of the Travel Channel’s latest documentary That Crazy French Woman in Georgia.Editors and senior journalists from prominent international media outlets such as Sky TV, the Sunday Times, the Daily Mail, Radio Times, and the Daily Telegraph Magazine attended the premier, lapping up a relaxed atmosphere and a variety of fantastic Kvevri wines from a number of leading Georgian wine producers.

I bumped into Claudio Samson a French wine expert who this year has started wine tours in Georgia. Why on earth is a Frenchman coming to Georgia for wine? “They’ve made 50 years’ worth of progress in 20 years. Their unique grapes and modern production systems will make their wines world-beaters,” he said confidently.
