Full description
Your tour starts in Tbilisi at 9:00AM, at which point you will depart for your first destination, Telavi. This city served as a capital of the Georgian kingdom Kakheti in the late middle ages. Here you will be able to explore its well-preserved palace called Batonis Tsikhe (“Fortress of Master”), which was built between the 17th-18th centuries and was used as a residential place for Kakhetian kings. You can also explore Alaverdi Cathedral, which is the second highest church in Georgia and represents a beautiful 11th century Georgian architecture.

Following this, you will visit the Qvevri Wine Museum in Nafareuli. Georgia is widely considered as a cradle of wine. The wine culture was widespread in Georgia since the 6th millennium B.C., and since that time, wine has been produced by special methods. The most famous of these methods is using huge clay earthenware vessels called Qvevri, and in the Qvevri Museum, you will find out Georgian wine making methods in detail. Near the museum is the Twins Winery where you can taste three Georgian Qvevri wines made by Rkatsiteli, Kakhetian Green and Saperavi.

Following this, you will visit Gremi, a 16th century architectural complex including the Royal Citadel and the Church of the Archangels. Here you will discover how Georgian (Kakhetian) kings lived, including their clothes, furniture and other items. Afterwards you will experience the Kindzmarauli Corporation, one of the largest wineries in Georgia where you will taste 4 different kinds of wines. Finally, you will visit the Tsinadali Museum, which is a historic winery that once belonged to the aristocratic Chavchavadze family. Your full-day tour will then end at 8:00PM, at which point you will be returned to Tbilisi.
