Georgian cuisine is renowned for its diversity of flavors and taste profiles. In this article, we will provide a guide to pairing Georgian wine with traditional Georgian dishes as well as international cuisine. Finally, you'll find our menu suggestion to enjoy a Georgian evening with friends.

The Stars of the Georgian Cuisine: Khachapuri and Khinkali

Khachapuri: This Georgian dish consists of thin dough filled with cheese, egg, and often bacon. It's a true delight and pairs exceptionally well with Georgian white wines like Rkatsiteli or Mtsvane. The light acidity and freshness of these wines cut through the rich cheese filling.

Khinkali: Khinkali are stuffed dumplings often filled with minced meat (lamb or beef) or mushrooms. A classic dish that pairs perfectly with robust Georgian red wines like Saperavi or Mukuzani. These wines provide a perfect complement to the hearty and spicy flavors of Khinkali.
International Pairings: A Culinary World Tour

In addition to traditional Georgian cuisine, you can also pair Georgian wines with international dishes:

Italian Cuisine: Try Saperavi with Pasta Bolognese or a rich risotto. The mature fruit flavors of the wine harmonize well with the tomatoey and savory notes of Italian cuisine.

Asian Cuisine: Combine a dry Georgian white wine like Tstitka with sushi or spicy Thai dishes. The light acidity and freshness of the wine complement the exotic flavors of Asian cuisine.

French Cuisine: Mukuzani, a robust red Georgian wine, can be served with a juicy steak or Coq au Vin. The wine's tannins perfectly complement the rich French flavors.
