In his foreword, the author addresses the listener: "Join me in my incredible journey to the wonderful and mesmerizing land called Georgia, a country in the Caucasus known in ancient times as Iberia. It is famous for its millennia-old history and traditions and distinguished by its unbelievably rich landscapes and biodiversity. This country - less than one one hundredth the size of Western Europe - offers an amazing diversity of climate zones. Within hours by car, you can switch from enjoying subtropics to skiing or contemplating the eternal ice enveloping the Caucasus Mountains; or from soaking in the warm waters of the Black Sea (in the moderately humid Mediterranean-type of climate) to meditating on eternal questions in the deserts of Georgia's dry continental climatic zone.
Just think about it! The word wine in many languages of the world, including English, stems from the Georgian word ghvino. And it is no coincidence. After all, Georgia is regarded as the universal cradle of winemaking!"
Your best guide to my home country, Georgia in the Caucasus.

Interesting history - poor narration
Would you try another book from David Gorji and/or Paul Rimple?
This is a very personal search, and it has that colloquial feel to it. I enjoyed the history and the background on the Georgian people. I did not care for the narrator and there were some pronounciation issues.
