Western Georgia Wine Tour 2 Days

Duration: 2 days. Best season: All year round

We will be visiting Imeretian and Megrelian natural wineries during this tour. These are one of the most diverse regions of Georgian wine making. Climatic conditions and soil composition are very different and so are the wines -  playful, vibrant, fleshy and lively. In the west Georgia the classic technology (White wine) of winemaking is mainly used and also, the Kvevri (a clay vessel) is actively used, which is called Churi in the west. However, unlike Kakheti, the volume of the grape must is significantly lower in the grape juice, which contributes delicate structure and elegance to the wines. These wines are playful, vibrant, fleshy and lively. Western Georgian cuisine is known for its plentiful use of walnuts, fresh cheese, veggies and spices. 

So get ready to meet the real Georgian hospitality. Discover the boundless diversity of the western Georgian viticulture and cuisine and explore the cultural heritage of the ancient Kingdom of Colches.
