A Piece of Soul

Many countries challenge the honour of being the inventor of a noble drink that went down in the history of mankind under the name ‘Wine’. Without pretending to be the ultimate truth, let us point out only one historical fact - the remains of the oldest cultivated vine in the world, dating to about 6000 BC, are found in the territory of modern Georgia. Even turning a blind eye to this event, which undoubtedly testifies in favour of the fact that Georgia is the oldest center of winemaking, ask yourself what, besides legendary hospitality, this country is primarily associated with. Of course, with wine.



Going through the finest facets of taste and aroma, plunging into the sensuality of a divine drink, you can learn something more than simple pleasure - you will be imbued with the history and philosophy of the people for whom the vine and winemaking are not just a national culture, but an inseparable part of the soul.


We will start our exciting journey into the wonderful world of Georgian wine from Eastern Georgia, where we will get acquainted with the famous wines and wine traditions of the Kartli and Kakheti regions. And, of course, do not forget to pay tribute to the amazing chacha and brandy.
