Full description
Your tour will begin in the morning, as you set off to the very east of Georgia to the lovely city of Sighnaghi. This most romantic city of Georgia is famous for its old Georgian architectural style, amazing views over the Alazani Valley, and the second-longest castle wall in the world (after Great Wall of China). Having a stroll along narrow streets of the city you will visit the “Pheasant Tears” winery, and it is here that you will discover some the best traditional organic Georgian wines.

Following this you will go down to the Alazani Valley, where you will reach the wine village of Velistsikhe. It is here that you will visit the 300-year-old wine cellar of Numisi. You will be free to have lunch in Velistsikhe (your guide will advise you on the best places), before you continue your tour visiting the unique winery of Khareba (the "wine tunnel in the rock").

Here you will be able to see the difference in European-style wine making and traditional Georgian wine making, before tasting the best wines produced by the Khareba Winey. Following this, you will visit the Alaverdi Monastery and the Matsoni House. The monastery was founded by the Assyrian monk Joseph (Yoseb, Amba) Alaverdeli in the 6th century. You will then taste different kinds of Matsoni, which will surprise you with its different and marvelous taste.
Your tour will conclude later that evening, as you return back to Tbilisi.
