Spring at the Cradle of Wine tour (May, Georgia)
Caucasian nature is beautiful at every time of the year, but in May when everything around is dazzlingly, uncommunicabably bright, fresh, green, blossoming, nature here is beautiful like nowhere in the word. Moreover, usually qvevri are opened (clay vessels in which wine is made in Georgia for more than 8 000 years using the same technology) and start to taste win which stayed in those vessels the whole winter long. And those 2 factors — the beauty of environment and time to taste wine harvest of 2019 is the best reasons to come to Georgia with us and make your May holidays unforgettable from esthetic and gastronomic point of view.
