Steeped in the legends of the Golden Fleece, Georgia has lain at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia for millennia. Its rich cultural traditions are infused with flavours and influences that have evolved and adapted since the days of the Iberian and Colchian civilisations. This long cultural history – including an 8,000-year-old winemaking tradition – has culminated in a reputation for exceptional cuisine and artisan wine.
Travelling in the company of renowned food and wine expert, Carla Capalbo (the author of “Tasting Georgia: A food and wine journey in the Caucasus”), we’ll enjoy a culinary journey through a landscape that is home to both infectious hospitality and one of the oldest Christian communities in the world.
Sampling the native wines of Kakheti in family wineries and Georgia’s regional, vibrant cuisine, we’ll travel from the country’s historic capital Tbilisi to the high slopes of the famed Georgian Military Highway. Filled with bustling markets, UNESCO world heritage sites and a stunning array of religious architecture that is amongst the finest anywhere in Eastern Europe, we’ll enjoy an expertly guided adventure that will be a true feast for the senses in every way.
ALL OUR SMALL GROUP TOURS HAVE NO LOCAL PAYMENTS, HIDDEN EXTRAS OR COMPULSORY SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS.
