Ever since I studied Georgian in Georgia (1996-97), I’ve been missing the wonderful Georgian wine. It’s ubiquitous in Georgia, and it’s extremely widespread in Russia too, but in western Europe, one hardly ever sees it. There are a few online shops that sell it, such as Fareham Wine Cellar in the UK and Gourmatis in Germany, but it’s hardly a huge selection that is available there, and it is annoying not being able to buy wine locally. I wish I could do something do bring Georgian wines to the shelves of Tesco and Asda!
Oh, in case you’re wondering about the headline: It just says kartuli ?vino “Georgian wine”.
Sebastian complained to me on MSN that his browser displays the Georgian characters as question marks. 🙁 I guess many computers don’t come with a Mkhedruli font preinstalled…
Just in case you want to know how it’s supposed to look like, here’s the relevant bit from my browser window.
it is very pretty to look at
Yes, even graffiti looks nice in Georgian! 😉
