Just the Bottle

One woman's adventure in beer, food, wine and spirits

New York Times Lists Georgia as a Top Destination

During the International Wine Tourism Conference in 2014 many of us were taken with Georgia's beauty.  The wine was stunning with a rich history.  But one participant began a love affair that has evolved into a new business venture.

The New York Times Travel section recently listed Georgia as a top destination for 2015.  In this brief summary about what Georgia has to offer they include shout outs to Vino Underground, Pheasant's Tears and TasteGeorgia.

Vino Underground was a gorgeous wine bar with an extremely knowledgeable owner whose knowledge is rivaled only by his passion for wine.  He actually produces some beautiful wine that I hope to be able to drink again soon.

Pheasant's Tears was a last stop on our trip in Georgia and one of the most welcoming.  While there I felt as if I was surrounded by family.  I may have even told John Wunderman how I wanted to put his wife in my pocket.  She graciously accepted this odd turn of phrase and I stand by it.

TasteGeorgia is all you need to know if you want to step into this world.  Started by one participant's passion and locals knowledge, they can help organize food, wine and more tours and private events for you.  It's a great way to begin your own Georgian love affair.
