When Noel Brockett met the woman of his dreams, his dedication to her swiftly grew into a passionate devotion to her home culture of the Republic of Georgia. In our conversation, we discuss how Georgia’s 8,000-year history of winemaking shares deep roots with its long tradition of liberal education. In this interview you’ll learn:
- How Georgia’s rich history of viticulture expresses itself today.
- The critical role liberal education plays in post-Soviet self-rule.
- About the 525 grape varietals and underground clay qvevri vessels unique to Georgia.
- What role epic poetry, such as Man in the Panther’s Skin, plays in Georgian culture.
