1 Day in kakheti
Join one of our wine tours and enjoy a day out from Tbilisi in the beautiful Georgian countryside Kakheti and taste award-winning wines. We will take you through quintessential villages and introduce you to an array of vineyards and wine producers.
You will learn about the Georgian traditional method to make dry, semi–dry, sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines (UNESCO has inscribed this method on the representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, 2013) and wine industry in general.
Georgia is one of the oldest wine region in the world. Archaeologists have discovered wine vessels (amphora shaped) which dates back to approximately 8000 years BC. There are nearly 400 grape varieties in Georgia and the best-known wine region Kakheti produces 70% of grapes.
On our way we will visit The King’s Palace in Telavi, house museum of Alexander Chavchavadze in Tsinandali and wine museum in Kvareli.
We will take part in the harvesting of wine grapes (subject to seasonality, mostly in September and October), pressing the grape in traditional way, preparing our own Churchkhela (Georgian candy), distilling local brandy Chacha and baking Georgian bread Shoti. All of this followed by a lunch at the tower-restaurant ,,Khareba” with the picturesque views on Alazani valley. There we have the opportunity to pair wine and food, raise a glass and propose a toast to the general joy of the whole table.
Our tours offer a great experience and a fun day out in a relaxed environment, and are a fantastic way to celebrate special occasions and are private, so you won’t get lost in the crowd.
