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!
