The 8,000-year history of Georgian wine is presented in a new three-minute animation made by Georgian wine company Tbilvino, which was released on December 6.
Spanning scenes from 6,000 BC to the present, the animation shows the most important highlights from the history of Georgia which are related to wine.
The animation opens with images of cavemen drinking wine in a cave, continuing with the arrival of the Argonauts for the Golden Fleece, the creation of the Georgian alphabet, Saint Nino from Cappadocia bringing Christianity to Georgia while holding a grapevine cross in her hand, and the establishment of the current capital city of Tbilisi.
Queen Tamar and her enthronement also features in the clip, depicting her presiding over the apex of the Georgian Golden Age.
Shota Rustaveli writing his famous poem The Knight in the Panther's Skin and Georgian painter Pirosmani painting one of his famous artworks of 'Georgian feasts' are also depicted.
Local advertising company Hans & Gruber and Animatory produced the Tbilvino animation.
