Itinerary


Day to day

Pick up from the hotel.

Drive to village Vardisubani located near Telavi, the administrative center of Kakheti region. Kakheti vineyards are cultivated on the river valleys of Iori and Alazani and makes up 70% of Georgia`s vineyards. The region is known with the most widespread (Saperavi, Rkatsiteli, etc.), and rare, endemic grape varieties (Kisi, Khikhvi, etc.). In order to discover more about the Georgian traditional and particularly Kakhetian winemaking technologies, we visit  Kbilashvili family with the long history of manufacturing qvevri (traditional egg-shaped earthenware vessel used for making, aging, and storing the wine) that spans for 4 generations. Get acquainted with qvevri making by master Zaza, and taste a glass of qvevri wine. Our next spot is also in the area of village Vardisubani –  ‘’Jakeli Wines’’ whose production is based on bio winemaking methods. Besides winemaking, the Jakeli family focuses on biological agriculture. After getting known to their story, you can taste 3 types of wine (2 white, 1 red), chacha, and enjoy delicious appetizers. 

Continue exploring qvevri wines in small town Akhmeta. Visit ‘’Lekso`s Winery’’ owned by a local winemaker Lekso, producing unusual blending of unique Kakhetian grape varieties (Khikhvi, Kisi etc.) with high and balanced alcohol. He will give us thorough information about his winemaking history and technologies. Enjoy with wine tasting and lunch.
