Come learn about Ancient World Wines, where the earliest wine production took place... as much as 8,000 years ago!
You're invited to join us for a virtual wine tasting event, held in partnership with Jet Wine Bar. Pick up a special curated collection of wine and then join us online to learn all about these wines!
We'll be tasting an amber wine from Georgia, a white wine from Turkey, and a red wine from Greece:
Emir, Turasan, Cappadocia Turkey (2018)
Mtsvane Qvevri, Shumi, Kakheti Republic of Georgia (2017)
Agiorgitiko, Hercules, Nemea Greece (2016)
How does this virtual event work?
