Taste some of the best wines in Georgia during this full-day visit to the Kakheti wine region around Tbilisi. On your visit, learn about the traditional Georgian method of making wine in clay vessels and taste the wines at several wineries.

A full day of great wine, authentic home made Georgian foods and amazing information from an amazing guide and driver Giorgi. No shortcuts were taken from the moment we were picked up at the hotel at 9am until the moment we arrived back at the hotel at 9pm by our amazing guide Giorgi with his very unique limited edition Star Wars rogue one Nissan. To say he was a Jedi as a guide is an understatement. Great local cheeses, bread, traditional Georgian homemade sweets, Buffalo yoghurt, organic wines from white, amber to red, grape liquor called chacha, to being welcomed into the ancestral home of a Georgian family to try their 200+ grape types from their humble backyard to eating their traditional food cooked by them. Then visiting the largest winery that store and age their wines in a bomb shelter. This is a tour that will not be soon forgotten.

Highly recommended

A great day out with our guide Tsotne. Four of us, plus Tsotne, getting to the end of the season, really, for the wine region, but a lovely day. Tsotne is a great guide; very friendly, informative, and well-organised, excellent English (if you need it), and a safe driver. From the initial bread and cheese stop en-route, to the final stop at wine vaults in a tunnel, a great introduction to the wine-making culture. Good wines to try, good food to eat, interesting places to visit, and an education. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good day out.

from pickup to drop off, we were treated so well and enjoyed and extensive and comfortable private excursion into kakheti. the tastings and tours did an excellent job showcasing the magic and uniqueness of Georgian wine, and our hosts at every stop were a joy. lots of wonderful people to meet and friends to make on this tour! and special thanks to shotiko for being a great guide.

Excellent tour and was great from start to finish! Otto was friendly and a great guide - overall stellar day and I highly recommend it!

Unforgettable experience that was educational, fun and enjoyable from beginning to end. Can’t recommend this enough!
