Description

Historically, Georgia was a territory where the culture of winemaking prospered. It has an 8000-year history of continuous winemaking tradition, which is evidenced by numerous archaeological discoveries.

Qvevri, the ancient Georgian winemaking method, gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 2013. Today there are over 500 grape varietals in Georgia – a greater diversity than anywhere else in the world.

During our tour we’ll visit the 4th-century Bodbe Monastery, which was built on the tomb of St Nino, the woman who brought Christianity to Georgia. Beside Bodbe is Signagi, one of the oldest towns in the country. Located on a steep hill, Signagi overlooks the vast Alazani Valley, with the Caucasus Mountains visible in the distance.

Our final stop will be the Wine Tunnel at Winery Khareba. The winery is set in an 8-kilometre-long tunnel under a mountain. Here, you’ll hear the history of Georgian wine and have the opportunity to do a tasting (not included in the price). You’ll also have a chance to purchase high-quality and prize-winning Georgian wines, honey, grape-seed oil, and traditional Georgian churchkhela (candy).

Wonderful tour, delicious wine
Mariam and her driver George took us on a wonderful day trip out of Tbilisi. We enjoyed gaining an insight into Georgian culture and history - and winemaking - and tasting the products thereof at excellent wineries around Signagi.

Thank you to Mariam for her excellent knowledge and presentation, and to George for his safe driving.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour.
Wonderful winery tour
Had a wonderful trip with Mari and George, despite the weather. They both nice and polite, described the true Georgian peole. Mari knows what she’s doing and friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Highly recommend.
Amazing day in Kakhetia!
I trully can't think of something wrong with this tour. Our guide Mari is amazing starting from the knowledge she has about her gourgeous country and the region to the feeling you get as if you were long time friends. The driver was great as well. They were puntual and open to any requests.
