Georgia: Drink It In

Europe's rising star, Georgia is a wealth of unexpected beauty—a place renowned for its ancient wine culture (the rumored birthplace of wine, in fact!), fantastic mountain scenery and a relatively undiscovered yet incredibly delicious food scene. We’re here to go deep, from the dramatic architecture of Tbilisi to the alpine giants of the Caucasus Mountains to the vineyards of Kakheti.
