If you have any nice dry Sauvignon Blanc/Pino Grigio type whites, and maybe a nice red in your stock, bung three or four in your car when you head to London. I'll pay you for them of course. I fancy trying some of this stuff, and you seem to know your eggs.

I would do, but we are coming by train, and running out of the Georgian wines, only have 2 or 3 bottles left now, will have to place another order soon I think. We could split a case if you want?

The one above we had last night is a really nice dry, I'm sure you would like it, but we got that from Ukraine, not sure if you can get it here or not, will have to enquire next time.

When in Ukraine in August I tried some Georgian reds for the first time and quite liked them. Kindzmarauli was very good in particular and I brought a bottle back with me to Australia, just need a special occasion to crack it open soon.

Liked the Inkerman (Ukrainian, Crimean) reds as well.

Georgian, Moldovan, and Romanian reds  :thumbsup:

Fantastic bang for the buck. I almost exclusively buy Romanian reds and in fact am running into NYC with my Russian friend on the 21st of March to restock followed by our favorite Greek restaurant in Astoria.

It's going to be a very "international" day  :)

Yes we still drink Georgian wines at home or if dining out in Ukraine, they take some beating.
