Description

Our trip begins on the Gombori Pass, the picturesque road to Kakheti. We’ll stop to take photos and drink and coffee.

After Gombori, we’ll reach Telavi, the largest town in Kakheti. Telavi is set in the vineyard-strewn Alazani Valley, between the Gombori Mountains and the Caucasus.

Next, we'll visit King Erekle’s newly renovated castle, then continue on our way to a local winemaker and his family to taste traditional Kvevri dry wine which is made inside large earthenware vessels. We’ll also visit a local Kvevri maker to see how these impressive vessels are made!

Our final stop will be the Shumi Winery for another wine tasting and delicious lunch before returning to Tbilisi.

One surprise after another !
This was an absolute perfect day ! Not only because we have learned a lot about qvervi method and tasted a lot of great wines and chacha - but it was told, taught en showed to us with so much enthusiasm, knowledge and a big smile! However the best part is that the winemakers we visited were her friends and we were also treated like we were friends of the family for years - for instance it was my partners birthday and during the second wine tasting at the table in the home garden the sister came outside with a big cake with a candle singing ´Happy Birthday´!!! How is that possible ?! So so sweet and nice. Also nowhere you get the feeling that its a standard program - its your party and she and her friends are gonna make it the best party ! Biggest hug for the perfect day !

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.
Fantastic insight into Old and New Tbilisi
Mari is a intelligent and insightful guide. She showed us some lesser known sights of Tbilisi linked it with the complex history of this fascinating country, She is well educated and could answer our myriad of questions. She helped us buy tickets to the Ballet from the Tbilisi opera house and recommended some great restaruants. Thank you Mari. Great Tour. Great Guide.
