This tour visits some of the best vineyards in the country, where you’ll learn about the Georgian art of viticulture and taste some of its finest wines. Along the way, you’ll stop at some of the many historical and religious sites, giving you a flavour of this beautiful country’s stunning and often dramatic landscapes.
