If the mountains are the crown of Georgia's magnificent landscape, Kachetia is the shining heart. Known almost exclusively from vineyards and wineries, this wide and fertile valley cuts into the snowy Dagestan Caucasus from the north and Azerbaijan wetlands from the south.
Georgia is undoubtedly the birthplace of grape cultivation. Nowhere else in the world is the evidence is reaching such ancient times. Grape seeds found in the Caucasian tombs are over 7,000 years old. There are over 500 native grape varieties in Georgia, far more than anywhere else! Most of them are still completely unknown to the rest of the world and only here you can try extremely unique varieties with a wide range of subtle differences in taste.
On this trip Georgia will reveal to us its quintessence. We will indulge in the beautiful landscapes of the Caucasus, taste wonderful Georgian cuisine, right at its birth place. It will be a great opportunity to experience an adventure in the country of famous toasts and hospitable people.
