Kartli Wine Tour from Tbilisi

If there are two things that every visitor must experience in Georgia, it’s wine and cathedrals. This one-day Kartli Wine Tour from Tbilisi takes you to both, starting with Jvari, an important church overlooking the confluence of the Aragvi and Mtkvari Rivers, and then stopping at the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, dating from the 11th century. The wine portion of the tour kicks off with a visit to Chateau Mukhrani, one of the premier vineyards of the Mukhrani region, where French winemaking techniques are fused with a classic Georgian royal estate. Finish up at Merebashvili Winery, a famous vineyard which produces wine by the traditional Georgian method - in Qvevri. Experience classic Georgia for yourself with one-day tour of churches and wine.
