Our journey begins in the charming village of Vardisubani, nestled near Telavi. This historic village is renowned for its production of egg-shaped earthenware vessels called Qvevry, used for making, aging, and storing wine underground. These unique vessels are recognized by UNESCO as intangible World Heritage.

We'll have the opportunity to visit two esteemed winemaker families in Vardisubani. First, we'll meet the Kbilashvili family, who have upheld the Qvevry manufacturing traditions for four generations. Master Zaza will introduce us to the art of Qvevry making, followed by a tasting of their exquisite Qvevri wines.

Next, we'll visit Jakeli Organic Vineyard and Wines, another family-owned establishment dedicated to biological viticulture. Learn about their fascinating story and enjoy tastings of three wines (two white, one red), along with chacha and delectable appetizers.

Our wine exploration continues as we venture to the northern part of Kakheti region to visit Lekso's Marani in the quaint village of Akhmeta. Lekso, a passionate winemaker, specializes in unique blends of Kakhetian grape varieties Khikhvi and Kisi, boasting high and balanced alcohol content. Indulge in a delightful lunch following the wine tasting experience.

Our final destination is Tsinandali, renowned as one of Georgia's premier wine-making regions. Here, we'll visit Shumi Winery, known for its wide range of grape-based alcoholic beverages and innovative food products. With a focus on quality and innovation, Shumi is at the forefront of utilizing biodynamic and green harvest methods, producing certified organic wines.

*Optional: Extend your wine journey with an additional dinner and tasting session at Tsinandali chateau Schuchmann Wine & Spa

After a day filled with wine delights, we'll return to Telavi, concluding our memorable wine tour experience.
