I remember my first supra in the summer 2010 in a village in eastern Georgia. The occasion was a house blessing and we were invited by our friend Giorgi to participate in a traditional Georgian feast known as the “supra” with the villagers. In my book “Piece of Soul through the Heart” I describe my first supra experience and must say the memory is with me to this day.
Every time I try to explain what a supra is to travel agents and others, I find no words that describe the incredibly tasty food, the bouquet of the wine and the camaraderie that lasts for hours – until I read Karen Shimizu’s article in Saveur Magazine. As a tour operator, I am always on the lookout for well written articles by an American. After talking to Karen, I realized that she loves Georgia as much as I do. Here is the link to Karen’s article – I guarantee you it’s worth a few minutes of your time. Gaumarjos!
