One nice Thursday afternoon in winter 2016 I went to one of the new coffee shops to check out their winter menu. You might not understand the peculiarity of the situation, but Tbilisi still was a city that mostly drinks Turkish coffee (which I also like), had instant coffee listed in the menus of quite an amount of restaurants and didn’t care what was beyond cappuccino and latte.

As I discussed the recent trip around Kakheti with my friend Levan, who was about to host four Poles, I was afraid that there would be too much drinking.

In winter 2014-2015 I used to make up a list of place where you can warm yourself up with mulled wine / glintwein. Even though there were plenty of wineries all around Old Tbilisi, as I decided to go for a short glintwein check, it appeared that not all of them prepare the drink.
