14 January, 2016

Iconic luxurious hotel in London, The Ritz is now serving orange wine by the glass, among them Georgian Iago Bitarishvili Chinuri wine is listed, the hotel’s head sommelier Giovanni Ferlito has announced

Hotel celebrates its 110th anniversary, has added 150 new wines to its illustrious list. These include five orange wines. Georgian wine is one of these five.

The new list also places a strong emphasis on indigenous varieties, with lesser known wines from regions including Languedoc, Jura, Corsica, Etna, Georgia, Slovakia and Santorini all included.

According to the hotel’s administration a selection of 46 wines have been made available by the glass, including 16 wines which will be available using the Coravin system.

The Coravin Wine System uses transformational technology that allows you to pour your favorite wine by the glass, without pulling the cork.

Sommelier Ferlito explained that it was important to fill geographical gaps, noting: “When I came to the Ritz one and a half years ago I was so excited about the wine list. It was great, but it was very classic. So we had very nice verticals of all the big châteaux – Château Latour, Mouton, Lafite, Margaux; and in Burgundy the same, but we were missing other important regions”.
