Correction in Saperavi article

Nick Writes

There is one mistake in an articla about Saperavi. Saperavi truely means 'dyer' but not in Russian. It is a Georgian word. 'peri' means a color and saperavi means something that gives a color.

Darby Says

Given Nick's address I will have to concede to his superior local knowledge. In fact as of today I know only two words of Georgian - peri meaning colour, and saperavi a grape variety.

I'll add the correction and to the Saperavi page on Vinodiversity, and a thank you to Nick. It's great to know Vinodiversity is read all around the world.
