Description

In the morning the journey begins east of Tbilisi, towards Telavi in Kakheti, the largest wine-growing region in Georgia. The first stop is at Alaverdi Cathedral. Alaverdi Cathedral is one of the most important orthodox monuments in Georgia and has been on the UNESCO list since 2007.

Next stop is the twin wine cellar in the village of Napareuli. Here you can visit a famous wine museum and get to know the Georgian way of wine production. In the different rooms of the museum you can see how the Georgians make Kwewri (huge terracotta tanks), how they plant Kwewri in the earth and how the wine production proceeds.

The next stop is the Gremi fortress. Gremi was the most important city in the Kakheti region until the 16th century. Nowadays, the picturesque location of the fortress with its high bell tower and walls gives a deep impression to the guests.

Afterwards you drive to Kwareli, a wine tunnel built under the hills of the Great Caucasus. The total length of the tunnel is 8,000 m and is divided into two main tunnels, each more than 800 m long. The tunnels are used for the maturation of the wine. Above the wine tunnel there is a beautiful restaurant, which is built on the top of the hill and offers a picturesque view of Alazani valley. Here you can enjoy delicious and traditional Georgian dishes.

On this tour you will also visit the Prince Chavchavadze Palace in the village of Tsinandali with adjacent French Park and wine cellar. In the wine cellar you can taste different kinds of local wine.
