Georgia Has Low Culture of Wine Consumption, Thinks Expert2011-05-10 12:36
According to a member of the Georgian "Wine Club", journalist Aleko Tskitishvili, in spite of the fact that wine is a national Georgian product, the education of the population in this area is still on a quite low level.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Despite the fact that all the world considers Georgia the patria of wine, in the country itself few people understand what high-quality wine means and how wines should be combined with certain dishes, thinks the expert.
In his words, almost in 90% of the Georgian restaurants and catering companies some dubious alcohol drinks.
In Tskitishvili's opinion, the correct wine consumption culture should be taught already to schoolchildren. "It should also be explained to them that a Georgian did not drink wine to get drunk. Children should know the rules and customs of Georgian cuisine in its best sense. Schoolyards should have traditional Georgian marani (wine cellars) with satsnakheli (wine press), kvevri (wine pot) and other ethnographic accessories where children could study what is scattered about various textbooks of various forms on the level of theory" said Tskitishvili.
