The wines from Georgia are famous all over the world for their quality. The tour to Georgia – especially in autumn, time of the harvest and green wine- may show you a lot of interesting things about the country and its wine. You will take part in the harvest or you will be just a spectator – both you will taste wonderful Georgian wine and know the country.
There different wine regions in Georgia and each of them is well-known for its unique sorts of wine. The most precious wines – kindzmarauly, tsinandali and saperavi – are produced in the region of Kakhetia. The local wine-makers have been keeping their ancient technology and they are always glad to tell some words about it to our visitors. For the real gourmet it is the best experience – to watch the process of the wine-making, to know it from the vine to the wine-cellar.
Another wine-region is worthy, too. Racha is a region difficult of access. The Khvanchkara is made there – it is a unique semi-sweet natural wine. Racha will charm you by its white mountains, green fields and pure mountain rivers.
