Kakheti is Georgia’s main wine-producing region. Wine grapes have been cultivated in these lands for 8000 years!
What makes Georgian wine unique, is Qvevri – large clay vessels used for the fermentation and storage of wine since ancient times. The unique way of making Georgian wine was passed on by the Georgian orthodox monks through the ages.
We’ll have an early start from Tbilisi, leaving the city behind for vineyards, Qvevri, tradition and fantastic wine and food. Our first stop will be at the Alaverdi monastery. A total of 104 endemic varieties of grapes grow at Alaverdi monastery of st. George which traces its history back to the 6th century.
We will visit church and then we will continue our trip to village Ninigori where we will be hosted by nice family and they will show us how to make traditional Kakhetian dishes:
Khinkhali – dumplings stuffed with meat/mushrooms/cheese/potatoes. Making them yourself is a lot of fun and eating them is even better!
Chakapuli – lamb stew with tarragon and other fresh herbs, tkemali (green plums) and white wine.
Churchkhela – traditional Georgian sweet made from nuts and tatara -wine pouding.
Traditional bread baking in a Tone – a clay oven
At the end we will enjoy with Georgian feast ”Supra” – tasting local wines with food we prepared together before our journey back to Tbilisi. Arrival at 21.00 pm
