„ხოხბის ცრემლებს“ განსაკუთრებით გაუმართლა, რომ თანამშრომლობს უდიდესი ნიჭისა და გამოცდილების მქონე ადგილობრივ ანსამბლთან. ანსამბლი „ზედაშე“ მრავალჯერ სტუმრობდა ევროპასა და ამერიკის შეერთებულ შტატებს. ამჟამად იგეგმება დასავლეთ სანაპიროს ტური აშშ-ში. გთავაზობთ ტურის სარეკლამო რგოლს, სადაც ნახავთ, როგორი სუფრით გაგიმასპინძლდებით ანსამბლ „ზედაშეს“ სიმღერის თანხლებით, თუ ჩვენთან ერთად დააპირებთ მოგზაურობას.
მეორე ნაწილში წარმოდგენილია ქვევრის მოხდის ტრადიცია და ღვინის მიწოდება პირდაპირ მიწიდან.
At Pheasant's Tears, we're particularly lucky to work with a local ensemble of immense talent and experience. The Zedashe Ensemble has toured Europe and the United States several times and is currently gearing up for their 2010 west coast tour in the US. We offer here a promotional video
for the tour that gives a sneak peek at what a supra with Zedashe will be like when you book a tour with us. Part 2
features the opening of a qvevri and serving up wine directly from the earth.
Message in a Qvevri
Vintners are clamoring for an ancient vessel that makes pure wines. Just don’t call it an Amphora.

I first met Jonathan Wurdeman less than two years ago. I had made
frequent business trips to Georgia for almost three years back then but
he did not seem to belong to any group of people I met in the country
before. As an American artist who had settled in Georgia more than a
decade ago he was fluent in Georgian - unlike most expatriates I knew
who could only speak the basic words. His ambitious blue eyes shining
with excitement, he also did not look like the Georgian figure already

Sampling Georgia's Old World wines
As we headed to the far east of Turkey we were having to pull out our
mini atlas more and more to explain where exactly we came from.
It would usually go like this: The suspicious Turk would scrutinise the
page, take the atlas over to a group of his mates, they'd huddle around
it in deep discussion. When they'd decided that we weren't making it up,
we'd finally get the book back, all of them grinning at us - their new

Now we are in the fertile mountainous region called Caucasus. To be more precise, our destination is Georgia, a small country with a rich history (the subject of Georgian Wines was already discussed in this blog, but recent encounter with Georgian Wines convinced author that this subject is worth talking about again).
Neil Sowerby's April 2012 Wine Column
The name comes from a Georgian tale in which the hero claims that only a wine beyond measure could make a pheasant cry tears of joy. Quite soon I hope to be hosting National Saperavi Awareness Day. Join me.
