Master Sommelier Isa Bal was another new name and covered the Southern & Eastern Mediterranean region. Rytis Jurkenas: DWWA 2014 judge - “I adore blind tastings as when you are left alone with a wine, it speaks to you and reveals its true essence and, without prejudice, you become part of an exciting discovery in every glass.”

JSC “Teliani Valley” was founded in 1997 on the basis of “Teliani Winery of Vintage Wines”, which was built in 19th century in Tsinandali, in the neighbourhood of Teliani’s vineyards. Tsinandali, due to peculiarities of its soil and microclimate, has always been the centre of Georgian viticulture.
