France, Spain, Italy, South America are the most recognized wine regions of the planet. But the homeland of wine and viticulture, in the world of experts, is dear and sunny Georgia! The most ancient grape seed of the planet is about 8000 years old and it was found precisely in the heart of the Kakheti wine region – in the famous Alazani Valley! And the peasants continue to make wine here in the traditional way, just as their ancestors did 6000 years ago – in clay jugs of kvevri!
Caucasus Event, the DMC and the host of the tour operator in Georgia will help you deepen into the world of wine and history. The best tasting rooms, exclusive and extraordinary wines, the oldest wine cellars, hospitable peasant farms and homemade maranys, as well as master classes on laying wine and national Georgian dishes cooking are prudently included in the program and corporate wine tours created by our team just for you!
The cultural and educational part is also on top – in Kakheti there are interesting ethnographic museums and art galleries, the oldest monasteries and medieval castles, which we will visit as part of the wine incentive program.
But wait for it: during the harvesting period of the Rtveli grape, which lasts from late August to late October, guests will be able to take part in this event and make their own divine drink!
