A Pilgrimage to the Cradle of Wine
is a well written and researched story about a visit to a five acre plot of grapes and walnut trees.
The photographs are outstanding; I particularly liked the platform for stomping grapes.
This wine shop sounds irresistible: "But afterward, drop by the Marani Wine Shop (32-93-45-63), a little storefront in the center at 18 Pushkini Street. The owner, Nugzar Melikishvili, carries many of the country’s best wines, and offers samples from unlabeled stocks he gets directly from local winemakers. His supply of domashnaya chacha, a homemade Georgian grape moonshine, can also be grand, if scorching. Have a free sample. (He will typically sell you a liter of the stuff for less than 5 lari. Do not drink it all in one sitting.)"
