Tour Description: Wine, Culture, and Scenic Beauty in Kakhketi

Every country has its own “Personalities” and “characters”, and Georgia is no exception. When it comes to the main characteristics of our country, the first thing that comes to mind is wine – a divine liquid that inspires, and widens one’s perspectives. 

Georgians thought that they simply loved wine, since it was always an important ascept of the daily life here, associated with the birth, life, death of a person, with religion, architecture and cultural development, but recently it was proved, that there was more to it, than seemed to the eye. 

In 2017, it was scientifically proved that Georgia is the first wine-making country in the world, keeping its unique traditions of wine-making in a clay vessel called Qvevri alive, for more than 8000 years already. 

Nowadays, Kakheti is the region that keeps those traditions alive, offering a wide variety of different wines still produced in the same way, that our ancestors did in the 6th Millenium BC, and the whole area is covered with lush valleys full of vineyards, nurtured by Alazani river slowly making its way from the Caucasus Mountains.
