Join Victoria Daskal DipWSET to explore the diverse wines that can be found in Georgia, the cradle of winemaking.

Event details

Considered the "cradle of winemaking," Georgia has been producing wine for over 8,000 years. Over its long history, politics and culture have shaped this ancient wine country into what it is today. It continues to reinvent and redefine itself with each vintage through the use of ancient and modern winemaking techniques applied to indigenous and international grape varieties.

Join Victoria Daskal DipWSET for her second overview of Georgian gems across indigenous varietals, "European" and "Traditional Georgian" winemaking processes and a range of styles from sparkling Pet Nat, textured Amber from Qvevri, full bodied rosé, to vibrant juicy reds. We will discuss and taste the distinctive varieties, producers, wine regions, and styles that make Georgia so exciting today.

Tasting level

About the presenter, Victoria Daskal DipWSET

Victoria Daskal DipWSET

Victoria is a wine writer, educator, presenter and consultant with over 15 years of experience in the wine industry.

In 2007-2008 Victoria travelled through 45 wine regions and 23 countries as part of a prestigious professional wine programme, the OIV MSc in International Wine Management. She began writing while on the road for Master of Wine Jancis Robinson’s publication, and moved to London to work with her on the wine knowledge platform, Purple Pages.

Victoria worked in fine wine sales, wine event management, and most recently was the Managing Editor of The World of Fine Wine magazine for six years.

In 2020 she launched a wine subscription club called Mummy Wine Club, combining her love of artisanal, high-quality wines made by small, family producers with creative cultural themes. Victoria’s curated selections based on Hemingway’s wines in A Moveable Feast, Ancient Wine Regions, and Volcanic Wines led to an award from Decanter Magazine and being listed by Stylist Magazine as Best Wine Club. Her business has since evolved from monthly wine boxes to wine masterclasses and tastings under the name Victoria Daskal Wine.

Upon completing the WSET Diploma with Merit, Victoria became a certified educator and teaches Levels 1-3 Award in Wines at WSET School in London.
