Description

Historically, Georgia was the territory where wine making culture prospered. Georgia has an 8000-year history of continuous winemaking tradition, which is evidenced by numerous archaeological discoveries. Ancient Georgian traditional Qvevri winemaking method is in the Unesco Cultural Heritage list (since 2013). Today there are over 500 grape species in Georgia, a greater diversity than anywhere else in the world.

We will see the Bodbe cathedral (4th century). The monastery was built on the tomb of St. Nino who introduced Christianity in Georgia. Next to Bodbe is the city-shelter Signagi which is one of the oldest towns in Georgia. People call it The Great Wall of Georgia, because its fence is up to 4 km. Located on a steep hill, Signagi overlooks the vast Alazani Valley, with the Caucasus Mountains visible at a distance.

Our last and very important stop will be at the Wine tunnel at Winery Khareba. An 8-km tunnel winery under a mountain, where we can taste wines (not included in the price, available for extra 15 lari) and hear the history of Georgian wine. Visitors can buy high quality and prize-winning Georgian wines, honey, grape seed oil and traditional Georgian churchkela.

Excellent tour
Mari, Was our local guide for the wine tour. She is enthusiastic and passionate about her job and her country. Answered all our questions with relish and was unhurried when we wanted to spend some extra time. Comfortable van too. We highly recommend her as a guide.
Great Experience
My husband and i came to georgia together for the first time for my bday. My husband looked us a tour with Mari Tina and she was just great. Totally loved the experience she gave us and she took us around to visit beautiful places in Georgia. She was patient, friendly and entertaining. Would definitely recommend her and definitely will contact her again when we go next time. Mari Tina took us to see the natural lake as a bday gift and the whole experience was perfectly amazing. Thank you Mari for recommending the Georgian food and educating us about the culture as well. Thank you for everything and lovely meeting you... xoxo Highly recommended..
A tour with friends, not guides
This was one of the best tours I have had, our Guide Mari and driver Zura made us feel like we are home, they made us love the country and took us to all the beautiful hidden spots. they knew everything and truly love what they do...being tour guides and doing this all the time, its amazing to see them look at sunsets an awe as we do, and to take photos of the attractions out of genuine interest.....it really felt like a tour with friends and not guides. If we go back to Georgia, it won't be without arranging it with them first
I travelled in Signagi. This tour was Excellent, well organized. Informative and Fun. I have been there a few days ago, One of the most beautiful views in the world from Signagi city. Mari told me what's the difference between Georgian wines. Very friendly and with incredible local knowledge on just about anything we asked her.
