Georgian Discovery Tours


Wine tours

Georgia is one of the oldest wine regions in the world. The fertile valleys of the South Caucasus house the source of the world's first cultivated grapevines and Neolithic wine production, from over 8,000 years ago. The roots of Georgian viticulture have been traced back by archeology to when peoples of the South Caucasus discovered that wildgrape juice turned into wine when it was left buried through the winter in a shallow pit. This knowledge was nourished by experience, and from 4000 BC inhabitants of the current Georgia were cultivating grapes and burying clay vessels, kvevris, in which to store their wine ready for serving at ground temperature. When filled with the fermented juice of the harvest, the kvevris are topped with a wooden lid and then covered and sealed with earth. Some may remain entombed for up to 50 years. Till these days local wine makers use traditional ways of making wine along with using modern technologies. You have an opportunity to see and take part in this amazing process and make it a part of your life experience that you’ll never forget.

This is the center of the Kakhetian wine producing region and is home to the unique “Winery Khareba” wine cellar.  Gvirabi (which means tunnel in English) is carved in the rock of the Caucasus Mountain Range. The tunnel was opened in 1962 for the World Wine Congress.
