About Silk Road Saperavi Dry Red
Silk Road Saperavi Dry Red has a brilliant ruby color and notes of tart cherry and pomegranate. Aromas of cinnamon and pepper give this wine a unique complexity. Has the weight and feel of a Rhône blend; shows the aromas of raspberry jam and fresh figs. The palate also finds tart lingonberries, proceeding to a long finish with orange zest and charcoal. Makes a perfect match with seared meats or salmon, and aged cheeses. 100% Saperavi grape from Kakheti.
About Silk Road Wines
Adalbert “Yanick” Arakelov, co-founding partner and CEO of Silk Road Wines, was born in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. It was when he could not find his favorite Georgian wines in stores, he decided to import them, and is now living the American dream as an entrepreneur by starting and growing his own business.
Sharon Arakelov grew up as a military brat and moved around before settling in Tampa Florida that she now considers home. Sharon invited Barry and Candy Greer to join her and her husband Yanick on a vacation to the country of Georgia where they fell in love with the wine and together formed the Silk Road Wines brand.
Barry Greer began his career as a firefighter/paramedic after graduating from The Ohio State University. After successfully working in the marble and hotel industries, Barry partnered with good friend Yanick Arakelov and entered the wine business with AG Globaltrade LLC the distribution firm for Georgian wines, and is proud to be an owner of Silk Road Wines.
Candice Greer is a native of Tampa, Florida, and is one of the owners of Silk Road Wines. In working with her husband, Barry, she considers herself a ‘jack of all trades’ having been an executive secretary, office manager, and a variety of other jobs in the marble and tile industry. Now she and Barry can focus their efforts on their love of Georgian wines.
