The Georgia Wine Tasting Tour engages all five senses as you roam Georgian wine country to visit monasteries and cathedrals, learn local winemaking methods firsthand and, of course, relish the distinct and heavenly flavors of the country’s finest wines. Your journey, which starts and ends in Tbilisi, will carry you through the sacred reverence of Mtskheta, the life-altering history of Gori, the cave town of Uplistsikhe and the timeless family wineries of Igoeti, Ambrolauri and Kaspi for two incredible days of relaxation.
The country of Georgia is the world’s oldest known wine producer, a heritage honored to this day in the multitude of vineyards, wine cellars and wineries that adorn the countryside. Georgian winemaking is truly unique in that it is still largely produced by family-run businesses using a traditional method known as qvevri, a tedious process that involves storing the wine in clay vessels that are buried underground for months before consumption.
In the morning, meet your driver and guide at your Tbilisi hotel to start your tour. Drive to Mtskheta (25km, 30min), ancient capital of Iberia and a holy pilgrimage site for most Georgians. In Mtskheta you will explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites:
