Explore the Cradle of Wine


Uncorking the Caucasus is about the wines from Turkey, Armenia, and Georgia. Part travel narrative and part wine guide, this book will take the readers on a tasting tour through the wine regions in the three countries, recommend the best wine each place has to offer, provide anecdotal insights into the wine culture of each country, and discuss the history of ancient winemaking based on archeological evidence and folklores.

Based on the authors' three-month wine travel trip through the Caucasus, this book takes a ground-level approach, which enables the readers to experience an intimate journey through the cradle of wine. Turkey, Armenia, and Georgia all claim to be the birthplace of wine. Some of those claims are supported by archaeological findings and some by anecdotal evidence. However, this book isn't about determining the birthplace of wine, but rather the goal is to capture the ethos of a wine region that is the connection between wine, people, and place.

For the wines highlighted in this book, besides their sensory merits, they should also inspire conversations, spark curiosity, and reflect an inspiring point of view that challenges the narrative of wine.

BONUS: Both the paperback and Kindle formats contain a QR code that will take you to a members site, which includes discount codes for online wine purchases and complimentary wine-tasting events.
