Kakheti Region of Georgia is in the eastern part of the country and is known for it wine, but there is so much more to this area of stunning beauty and scenery. It is so important to the country that they erected massive I LOVE KAKHETI letters on one of its highest hilltops, similar to the ones in HOLLYWOOD.
It is the hottest part of the country and has the the lakes, rivers and springs too, so perfect for the production of not only grapes for wine, but a colossal range of crops.
Georgian Wine production process is natural and there are no additives used. It has been done this way throughout its history and ‘the process’ is protected by UNESCO. There are over 20 Wine Factories and 50 Wine Museums, so if you want ‘all thing wine’ this is the place to visit.
Numisi Winery/Museum in situated in the middle of the region and is a lovely compact venue, run by locals. They explain the history of wine making and in the Autumn months, visits can take part in the old method of making the wine, by crushing the grapes with their feet. They explain how ‘Kvevi’s’ are used to store the wine underground, so a vacuum is caused and it remains at the same temperature throughout its whole process. There is also the museum, which is a collection of artefacts, tools and equipment used by Georgian Wine Makers and Farmers. Then there is the wine tasting at the end, accompanied with the sampling of traditional food too. There is the option of making bread over wood fired ovens, which is fun, even if very hot work. The making of Churchichels is unique, as you cannot do it anywhere else in the world. It is flower and grape juice mix, that has the texture of porridge, but the colour of wine. This is boiled in a pot and then nuts on a string are dipped into it. The mixture is then layered over the nuts and slowly pulled out and it starts to dry immediately, ending up looking like a wine coloured sausage. This is a national snack and sold at the side of the roads throughout the country and is known as a ‘Georgian Snicker’, for obvious reasons.
Khareb Winery & Restaurant is of very high quality and adds a touch of class to all things wine related. There are 7,700 meters of caves, filled with thousands of bottles of wine and it set in beautifully kept gardens, with pieces of art and water features. The tour is excellent at the venue and ends in a ‘wine tasting’ with the option of sampling traditional food too. Khareb is well known for its restaurant too, which is located directly above the Winery and provides beautiful and tranquil views of the whole of Kakheti. The venue, service, food and obvious wine selection is all first class, there are even private group areas too. This is a stylist way to appreciate wine, but does come at higher price than most, but if it is a special treat, its worth it?
Telavi is the main city of Kakheti and is situated in the foot-hills of Tsiv-Gombori Mountain Range. There are several impressive venues there, the following being the most popular; Alverdi St Goerge Cathedral, Gremi Citadel, Shuamta Monasteries, Batobis-Tsikhe Fortress and the museum of Kvevri Jars and wine. Also nearby is The Lopota Lake Resort & Spa, which is where you can have treatments, relax by the lakeside, horse ride or just enjoy the food and wine.
There are many types of wine grown in the region, so tasting all the varieties is all part of the fun, but the most popular are; Khanchkara, Kindzmarauli, Saperavi and Rkatsiteli. The wine process also produces the local ‘Cha Cha’ which is a brandy type drink, which can be as high as 80 per cent proof, so be careful when sampling or buying any?
This region is definitely more than just wine, an example being a visit to Tsminda Ninus Monastry in Bodbe, the burial place of St Nino, who brought Christianity to Georgia. She also used the shape of wine branches to make a cross, so it looks slightly different than the usual crucifix and is still used in many places in Georgia today? There are also magical or sacred springs there, where many people have said to have been cured of many illnesses?
The region is also famous for a recording of a Traditional Georgian Song, which was later sent to space on the Voyager Mission, it is called ‘Chakrulo’ and is still sung today.
The town of Signagi is opposite the Monastery and sits on the edge of a area jutting out of the side of the mountain. This provides views into the expansive valleys below and surrounding mountains. It is known as ‘the city of love’ as you can officially get married there in just 5 minutes. It is clear why it has this name, with its fresh air, beautiful views, sunny climate, colourful floral and fora, pretty central square, bars and restaurants, it has all the requirements for being the perfect place to pop that question?
Paris Mani Museum is not far and is a collection of this worldwide renown artists work, which some are worth millions. This is why he is one of the countries favourites sons.
Virtually everything possible is grown in this region; nuts, grapes, apples, pomegranates, plums, blackberries, tomatoes, cucumber, melon, fig, peach etc. If people want to get their hands dirty there are plenty of opportunities to do it. Many farms and families open up their doors to tourists and show them how they live, grow their food, make their wine and tend their live stock etc. They will always finish this unique glimpse into Georgian life with a typical meal, which will fill the table with the food and drink that has been made. This feast is not just for tourists, it is the way Georgians greet all guests, so be prepared to end up with a very full stomach.
This country has so many interesting things to see, do and experience, it is impossible to achieve it without expert knowledge, so visitors are advised to do it with an official Tour Company!
Also consider a visit to Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, which has amazing buildings, structures and architecture. It is more of a busy European city with its shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, a total contrast to Kakheti.
Consideration should be given to a visit to the relaxation and health region of Georgia and the main central town of Borjomi. It has Mineral Waters that are good for the digestive system, Spa’s that cure skin complaints and Fresh Air that helps with chest and breathing problems. There is also relaxation treatments available, great scenery, parks, historical buildings and much more.
