I needed to use the bathroom at the Museum of Wine in Valle de Guadalupe. At the bottom of the stairs, I passed through the doors and noticed on my right the national flag of the Republic Georgia. I could not believe it!
To the bathroom, I went. When done, I went into the free part of the museum. There it was: Georgia is the birthplace of wine.
I ran back out to the car to get the camera, thinking of my time in Tbilisi and wanting people there to see the photos. So, here I am on the blogosphere posting a couple pictures.
Yes, it is true: wine was first created/made in Georgia, and my experience there tells me that Georgians, unbeknownst to many, can easily stand toe-to-toe with any Spaniard, Italiano, or Frenchie … or Argentinian, I guess, on a night of wine and food and revelry!
