19. You Can Try Stalin's Favourite Georgian Wine
Wondering which wine to pair with you steak and chips tonight? Well, here's the answer for you - a lovely glass of Georgian Khvanchkara. Stalin swore by this wine and reportedly loved its delicate raspberry notes but it almost disappeared from production in 2006 when Russia attempted to ban it due to its supposed "poor quality". But fear not, the wine has returned with greater panache and is available once again in spruced-up form, so make sure its next on the list of must-try alcoholic beverages.
