Drive to a wine cellar of Merebashvili's Marani, in a small town Kaspi. The host follows traditional technologies for producing, fermenting and storing unique artisan natural wines in underground qvevri vessels. The tour takes place in the vineyards, where the oldest and endemic grape varieties (Chinuri, Tavkveri, Goruli Mtsvane, Shavkapito, etc.) are cultivated. Wine tasting is arranged by family.

Drive to Uplistsike, the ancient cave settlement in Georgia. The unique wine cellar is cut in a send rock, on the territory of Uplistsikhe Museum-Reserve. The wine cellar is roofed in a mixed style of Meskhetian “wooden crown” and the flat Bany roof and includes two areas: Qvevri cellar (clay pitchers) wine storage and a tasting area. The yard is decorated with vine terraces. Tasting includes natural wines produced from local vine varieties (Khidistauri, Atenuri, Chinebli and Tavkveri).

Next village to visit is Ateni, just in 15 km from the town Gori. Ateni is the only appellation micro zone of the Kartli region, distinguished with the wine ‘’Atenuri’’ (sparkling white wine, blend of Chinuri, Goruli Mtsvane, and Aligote grapes). Visit two wineries Chateau Ateni and Vacheishvili Rural House, get introduced with the winemakers, see the vineyards and taste red and white wines.

Enjoy lunch at Vacheishvili Rural House in Ateni.

After exploring the unique Kartli grape varieties head to Guramshvili`s Marani (wine cellar) in the village Saguramo, operated by the Kakhetian Traditional Winemaking company.
