Discover the Essence of Georgian Wine and Culture: A Journey through Tradition in Caucasus


Dear Wine Lovers,

Happy National Wine Day!

Welcome to a captivating journey through the Republic of Georgia, where ancient winemaking traditions and vibrant culture blend harmoniously. With an 8,000-year-old history of winemaking, Georgia stands as one of the world's oldest wine regions. As a Conde Nast top travel specialist for Georgia, it is my pleasure to show you this paradise for wine lovers.

Join the Silk Road Treasure Tours team and me as we take you to renowned wineries, connect you with passionate Georgian winemakers, cook traditional dishes like khachapuri together, and explore the breathtaking landscapes of the Kazbegi mountains and rich Georgian cultural heritage. Experience the best wine destinations not only on National Wine Day, May 25th, but anytime you crave an authentic and enriching Silk Road adventure.

Start your adventure at Chateau Mukhrani Winery and Palace, where traditional Georgian and European wine-making techniques are masterfully combined. Savor their finest wines, indulge in gourmet Georgian cuisine at the on-site restaurant, and wander through the historic Mukhrani Palace and its stunning gardens. Enjoy the curated tour at Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to learn about the region's profound historical and architectural significance.

Next, delve deeper into Georgia's winemaking history in the Kakheti wine region. We will take you to Twin's Wine Cellar in Napareuli Village, where you can enjoy a unique wine-tasting experience complemented by a tour of their fascinating wine museum. The winery's restaurant serves traditional Georgian dishes that create a profound connection to the land and its people.

We will enjoy superb views of the snow-capped Great Caucasus Mountains and verdant valleys in the charming town of Sighnaghi. Here, we will explore its cobblestone streets and immerse ourselves in the panoramic scenery before sipping wines from Pheasant's Tears, a small winery started by American artist John H. Wurdeman in this fortified 18th-century town. Your local guides will ensure a full immersion in Georgia's rich cultural tapestry and historical landmarks.

Another amazing place is Visiting Zaza Karaulashvili's Qvevri-making workshop in Vardisubani Village to witness the traditional Georgian wine-making technique recognized by UNESCO. Taste homemade wine and Chacha, and learn about the Qvevri method, which is integral to Georgia's cultural heritage. Enjoy a home-cooked authentic Georgian meal and warm hospitality of the region. Close by, the Alaverdi Monastery, with its ancient wine-making history, will deepen your appreciation of Georgia's long-standing wine culture.

Your journey through Georgia's top wineries is more than a wine tour; it's a cultural odyssey. Visit the Black Sea coast, where the Gonio fortress, linked to the myth of Jason and the Argonauts, awaits exploration. Enjoy the scenic beauty of Batumi and connect with hospitable Georgians!

Georgia's wine heritage and culture are unparalleled, offering an incredible diversity of wine styles from its 2,000 wineries. With over 500 unique grape varieties, Georgia promises an unforgettable wine-tasting adventure.

No journey through Georgia is complete without indulging in its culinary treasures. Enjoy Khachapuri, a cheese-filled bread, Khinkali, Georgian dumplings, and Pkhali, vegetable and walnut-based dishes that are as delightful as they are diverse.

Whether you are a wine enthusiast, a history buff, or a culinary adventurer, Georgia offers an experience like no other. Let the enchanting blend of tradition and modernity in Georgia's wine country create memories that will last a lifetime.
