In 2006, Hilarius Pütz was diagnosed with cancer. He then sold his vineyards on the Mosel and went to Georgia as a wine consultant. He still lives there today. Raffaella Usai met him in Tbilisi and talked to him about his second chance and the potential of Georgian wines.

Mr Pütz, why did you emigrate to Georgia in 2007?

Pütz: It was a very personal decision. I was diagnosed with advanced cancer in 2006. My doctor advised me to sell my two vineyards on the Mosel, I would not have long to live. And since my daughter didn't want to continue running the businesses, that's exactly what I did. So I was free and went to Georgia according to the motto "It doesn't matter where you die, experience something!".
