Kakheti Region, Georgia
KAKHETI AT A GLIMPSE
Explore Kakheti - Georgia’s well-known premier wine-producing region. Located in eastern Georgia, the city is known for its hospitality: you’ll be invited for a glass of wine no matter where you go, thus it is easy to find yourself wandering about town in a semi-permanent mellow haze. Kakheti is a wine lover's paradise and offers a great opportunity to taste various types of wine made of selected fruit.

Although the region might not be that well known in the west, it boosts some of the finest varietals in the world. The region is also rich in history as it was an independent or semi-independent kingdom for quite a long period of time.

Climb to the the picturesque hilltop town of Sighnaghi, check out the many beautiful churches, castles and mansions around the main town, Telavi.

Visit the incredible Davit Gareja - a rock-hewn Georgian Orthodox monastery complex located on the half-desert slopes of Mount Gareja. It includes hundreds of cells, churches, chapels, refectories and living quarters hollowed out of the rock face. The 6th century monastery named after its founder became a popular tourism and pilgrimage destination due to its divinity and healing power.
