In honor of International Women’s Day, Supra, the Georgian restaurant in DC’s Shaw neighborhood, will highlight Georgian wine produced by female winemakers, as well as host a fundraising initiative benefitting N Street Village.
Marked as a public holiday in the country of Georgia, International Women’s Day recognizes and remembers women and the accomplishments they have made to society, so Supra found it fitting to honor a number of women in the Supra family, the Georgian wine world, and the larger community of women in Washington, DC.
To mark the day, Supra will feature the wines of sisters Baia and Gvantsa Abuladze and will offer $10 off of featured bottles including Baia’s Tsolikouri, 2017; Baia’s Tsitka-Tsolikouri, 2017; Baia’s Tsitka-Tsolikouri-Krakhuna, 2017; Gvanta’s Ojaleshi, 2017; and Gvantsa’s Otskhanuri Sapere, 2017.
These young female winemakers, still a rarity in Georgia, are making a big impression on the wine scene and are becoming very well known. While theirs is a family affair – Baia and Gvantsa are fourth-generation winemakers – Baia is largely responsible for the white and amber varietals, while Gvantsa focuses on the red varietals.
The Gvantsa sisters hail from the west of Georgia, where wines tend to be light and refreshing, with less skin contact that gives many east-Georgian wines darker colors and more intense flavors.
Supra will also honor women in the community by donating 8% of all dinner sales on Friday, March 8th to the neighboring N Street Village, the largest provider of services for women experiencing homelessness in Washington, DC, serving nearly 2,000 homeless and low-income women each year.
The Village empowers women to claim their highest quality of life by offering a broad spectrum of services, housing, and advocacy in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
