“Wine & Mountains” Two days
For information about date and time of the tour please contact us.
Dear friends, we would like to offer you a “tailor-made” 2-day tour in Racha, the heart of Georgia. It is famous for the production of original, high quality, organic wines. The vineyard areas are not very big, this is why you can rarely find the Racha wine on the shop shelves.
Our tour includes 4 wine-tasting ceremonies, one of which will take place at the famous Royal Khvanchkhara winery and three at the private wineries. We shall also visit pristine canyons and waterfalls, staying for one night in a hotel surrounded by mountains.
The Tour Program:
Early in the morning we are leaving Batumi. The Martvili Canyon is our first stop. It’s a system of waterfalls with crystal clear water, where we shall raft down the river, in the shade of ancient mountains.
Afterwards we go to the Megreli monastery that was established more than 1000 years ago.
Lunch will take place in the center of Martvili town where we are going to try different dishes of Megreli cuisine. We continue our trip after the lunch going over the 1400 m mountain pass. There we will stop at the viewing point to look at the valley and an incredibly beautiful mountain lake. We will spend the night in the wine-maker’s house, where at the dinner we shall taste our first Racha wines.
The next day is the day of Khvanchkhara winery with an excursion and wine-tasting ceremony. Afterwards, a family of a local wine maker will invite us to a lunch and wine tasting ceremony. We are going to try several types of half-sweet red and white wines enjoying them with traditional Racha cheeses and other local delicacies. Dinner and wine tasting will take place in the family of another award-winning wine maker. There, the wine tasting ceremony shall also include a sparkling traditional wine, a real rarity in Georgia. Going back to Batumi after the dinner.
