Description

Your adventure begins with a morning pickup from your hotel in Tbilisi, setting out towards the verdant valleys of Kakheti along the picturesque Gombori pass, offering panoramic views that stretch across the horizon. Our first stop, a family-owned winery in the heart of the Alazani Valley, showcases the meticulous craft of winemaking. Here, every bottle tells the story of dedication to quality and the preservation of a unique heritage.

Following the wine tasting, we journey to the beautiful Gremi Castle. Standing as a testament to Kakheti's rich history, this architectural gem offers insights into the region's storied past amidst stunning scenic views.

Continuing to the village of Tsinandali, you’ll step into the refined world of Alexandre Chavchavadze—a 19th-century nobleman who pioneered European winemaking techniques in Georgia. The estate’s lush English-French garden, filled with exotic blooms, provides a serene backdrop to your first tasting of the famed Tsinandali white wine.

Nearby, the Shumi Winery awaits. This visit not only offers a taste of their exquisite wines but also includes a tour of their vineyard and museum, deepening your understanding of the local viticulture. Here, you will also enjoy a delightful lunch, perfectly paired with Shumi’s finest wines, offering a taste that complements the beauty of the surroundings.

After lunch, we head to Telavi to explore the stately Batonis Tsikhe fortress and marvel at the venerable 900-year-old plane tree, each offering their own unique glimpse into the local culture and history.

The day concludes with a leisurely drive back to Tbilisi, reflecting on the timeless landscapes and storied walls that define this remarkable journey through Georgia’s heartland.

Throughout this Georgia travel experience, enjoy the exclusivity of a private tour, making it a perfect day trip that caters to your curiosity and love for adventure.
