Kakheti

Kakheti is known as the region of vine for a reason. Unique and awards winning premium wines and brandies are produced here. It is also believed that the very first wines were made in Georgia thousands of years ago and now worldwide acknowledged by the scholars that Georgia is a cradle of wine producing. Main towns: Telavi, Sighnaghi, Gurjaani, Napareuli, villages Manavi, Napareuli and more and more carry the names of local wines.  

Kakheti is situated on the plains of the rivers Alazani and Iori and is surrounded by the Caucasian mountain ranges. When visiting the Kakheti region, at jovial and hospitable feast tables, you can listen to delightful polyphonic Kakhetian songs. It should be mentioned that the song "Chakrulo", can be listened to by creatures from alien planets, if they actually exist. This recorded song, along with other sound signals, was sent into space, to assist alien civilizations to have an impression of life on our planet.

Kakheti is an ancient region rich in historical monuments: the residence of Kakheti King Levan  at Gremi , the monastery from the 4th century Nekresi, a complex of the David Gareji monastery caves 6th cc, the monastery Shuamta  6th-7th cc., and Alaverdi , built in the 11th century. There is also Ikalto monastery, where, in the 12th century, one of the world’s oldest higher education institutions Ikalto Academy was founded by the King David Aghmashenebeli (the builder).

One of the most important towns of Kakheti is Telavi. It was founded in ancient times, and was mentioned by the Greek geographer Claudius in the 2nd century B.C. There are interesting museums there and some medieval churches and three castles have been preserved in Telavi.

In Kakheti, there is a small, but one of the most beautiful towns, Sighnaghi, with its unusually peculiar architecture and spectacular views of the Caucasus range. You will be much impressed with the Rtveli, i.e. harvest, in Kakheti. It is the period of grape gathering, and wine producing. Farmers finish every season with feasts and merrymaking. All guests are welcomed with great respect during this period.
