Georgian wine in Latvia

In Britain and Denmark, it’s almost impossible to get hold of Georgian wine. Compare this with the situation in any Latvian supermarket – see for instance the photo on the left (Gruzija is Latvian for ‘Georgia’).

What surprised me even more was that they also sold cheap Bulgarian copies of Georgian wines – see the photo on the right (you might need to click on it to see a larger version).

Needless to say, I brought several bottles back to Glasgow. Strangely enough, however, Phyllis doesn’t quite seem to share my love for kindzmarauli… We gave her parents a bottle, though, so it will be interesting to see their reactions!

  • I assumed that sth costing as much as £7 in Latvia would be exquisite – bloody hell you have funny taste buds – it tastes like vile, liquidy sherry gone off – yeuch :-\

  • Sebastian

    De ligner Takayi, de ungarske dessertvine, uhm – de er bare for svære og for dyre at få fat på herhjemme ;(

  • Det er ikke dessertvine, men bordvine (selvom de er ret søde).
    And I admit they might be an acquired taste. 😉
