The Georgia, Armenia, Turkey are often referred to as part of the Cradles of Wine Making, and with good reason, archeologists have found some of the world’s oldest wine artifacts (some 6000-8000 years old) in the Caucasus mountains. Georgia, in particular was called the ‘Cradle of Wine Civilization’ by none other than Hugh Johnson and the EU formally acknowledges the slogan “Cradle of Wine” for Georgia’s exclusive use. Traditionally famous for its quality of wine for hundreds of years, after Stalin and during Soviet rule quantity over quality became the norm. Stalin, was originally from Georgia and favored their wine, mandating they become the sole producer for the USSR – hence the quantity pressure. Luckily, since the fall of the USSR, Georgia has experienced a great new rebirth in wine making with top quality wines worthy of note and tasting. 

If you’ve been to Croatia or Puglia or Sicily, then you’ll feel at home here. Georgia is a beautiful country with lush landscapes and warm, welcoming people.

We’ll visit and stay in Tblisi, Georgia including a tour of the “old town” and a visit to Chardin Street with its wine bars. We’ll then head to the Kakheti region for winery visits and an overnight stay in Signagi and then a stay Telavi for more winery visits including a traditional wine monastery. Our tour returns to and concludes in Tblisi, where upon your return home we hope you’ll have fond memories of what could be arguably one of the best wine travel experiences of a lifetime.
