Discover the Georgian method of wine making.
Georgia is one of the oldest wine regions in the world. The fertile valleys and protective slopes of the Transcaucasia were home to grapevine cultivation and neolithic wine production for at least 8, 000 years.
Due to the many millennia of wine in Georgian history and its prominent economic role, the traditions of wine are considered entwined with and inseparable from the national identity.
Among known Georgian wine regions, the best is Kakheti.
During this tour, we will visit Khareba Winery in Kvareli. The wine is kept in 7. 7 km long tunnel cut off in the stone massif of Caucasian mountain range. The massif includes granite surrounded by shale layers. At any time of the year, the temperature is 10C-11C. Wine is being aged there in the oak barrels.
We also visit one of the most seeing places in Georgia - Signage - also called City of love, with very beautiful views of Caucasus range of mountains and Alazani valley.
During this tour, we will have the option to visit places such as:
- Badiauri Village (we will see where and how Georgian people bake a special bread and taste the Georgian cheese)
