3 Reasons to Visit Georgia Now: Wine, Cuisine & Culture (VIDEOS)

Out of the dozens of destinations that MIR Vice President Annie Lucas has visited in more than 30 years, she is unwavering in her love for Georgia — that relatively unknown travel gem of a country in the South Caucasus — and considers it her favorite place in the world. Smitten with this mountainous country steeped in history and culture, and legendary for its wine, food, and filmmaking, Annie designed a small group tour for MIR called A Taste of Georgia: Wine, Cuisine & Culture. 

In this video, Annie shares her love for Georgia and why it’s a must-see destination for travelers who want to experience the “best of the best” of this country’s living traditions, from tasty organic wines and feasts filled with rich, complex dishes to spine-chilling scenery, singing, and kick-up-your-heels dancing.
