Wine and Gastronomy Tours

Kakheti is famous for its hospitality and devoted to its old traditions. Situated in eastern Georgia, it is noted for its great vineyards. Here we offer some creative ideas how to get to know this fertile land and feel its pulse and extraordinary beauty.
These short tours put special accent on wine culture and relative dishes. You can see the difference between ancient, traditional methods of making wine in underground vessels and modern, technological processes in big wineries. An ultimate pleasure- wine-tasting in a monastery. We also offer cooking classes in farmer’s house or a culinary school. At night you can stay in various guesthouses, medium class hotels, modern spa-hotels and old-fashioned chateaus.
