KOSTA CHERNIKOV, co-founder of the wine importer and distributor GEORGIAN TOAST will lead the seminar, with a little help from BRAI’s resident oenophile Anna Winestein. Georgian Toast is based in Massachusetts and focused exclusively on Georgian wine and viticulture. Its portfolio of wines ranges from modern stainless steel production and oak-barrel-aged European-style wines, to amber wines made in qvevris (traditional Georgian acorn-shaped clay vessels, represented in the Georgian Toast logo seen here). Georgian Toast imports a variety of cuvées by boutique, organic and artisan wineries as well larger producers. Part of its mission is to educate consumers and industry professionals about the unique characteristics and history of Georgian wine.
