This was a great moment for all of us and we had a number of friends of Mamuka, Laurent and Cleveland Park Wines & Spirits ( 3423 Connecticut Avenue N.W. Washington D.C. 20008 Tel : 202-363-4265 www.clevelandparkwine.com, anthony.quinn@clevelandparkwine, sales@clevelandparkwine., also on Facebook at : Cleveland Park Wine & Spirits and on Twitter at : cpwine.spirits.com ) all show up. There were even people from the Georgian Embassy that came. It was really well-attended and the wines all showed beautifully, too.
We poured many of the red wines of Georgia all made with the Saperavi grape. We even introduced some " new " ones. I will include all of this information a bit later as I am now at home and without access to that.
We also poured the French wines of Laurent Guignard above that had an excellent sry white Loire Valley French 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the town of Quincy ; as well as a Bugey foothills of the Pyrenees mountains off-dry slightly rose-tinted sparkling wine as well that was equally appealing and charming.
I have much to say and to add but for the moment I will post this and let the pictures tell their stories and get you all curious and wanting to know more. Cheers, Anthony ( TONY ) Quinn
