Georgia is the oldest winemaking country in the world, with the tradition dating back at least 8,000 years. Here’s our guide to some of the best wine tours in Georgia.
The Georgian traditional winemaking process is different from the rest of the world and involves clay jars called qvevri. A couple of year’s ago, the Tourism Agency developed a project to popularise wine tourism in the country and constructed signs along the nation’s highways to indicate the Wine Route. You can sample an array of delicious Georgian wines and attend a wine workshop on Culture Trip’s specially curated, small-group Georgia adventure.
Chelti offers different wine tours all year round. Located in the Shilda village in the Kakheti region, the venue overlooks Alazani Valley and the Caucasus Mountains range. During the tour, you’ll be able to see the winery and taste some of the best wines from different harvests, walk in the cellar and attend the bottling process. Additionally, you can have dinner at the restaurant, participate in churchkhela making and tone bread baking. And if you happen to be in Georgia during the harvest season, you can come here to take part in the process.
