Local

I am a local guide and an English teacher. I like travelling, meeting people from different countries, making new friends, introducing them to my country's history, culture and cuisine. I like studying languages, so far I have learnt Georgian, Russian, English and Turkish. I can drive a car and most of the time I organize tours where I am the main driver but if the group is big then we hire a car. I have been organizing tours since 2013. My goal for my guests is to help them to experience my country, not just see it. And so far I have had satisfied and grateful guests, that makes me happier even more than them.

In Georgia, kvevris were used as early as 8 000 years ago and this tradition survives to this day.

In 2013, UNESCO added the traditional Georgian method of making wine in kvevris to its list of intangible cultural heritage, sending a message to the entire world that wine is a component part of centuries-old Georgian culture.

Notably, when a kvevri is buried in the ground, the temperature inside is maintained at perfect 130 -150 C needed for fermentation.
