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.
