Georgia is the oldest wine-making country in the world. Here, the beverage making process counts at least 8,000 years. The Georgian traditional wine-making 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 Wine Route. Here’s our guide to some of the best wine tasting tours in Georgia.
Chelti offers different wine tours all year round. Located in Shilda village in 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 a dinner at the restaurant, take the participation of tone bread and churchkhela making. And if you happen to be in Georgia during the harvest season, you can come here to take part in the process.
