Travel and life as we know it has come to a halt, with borders and businesses shut in a bid to control the spread of Covid-19. Instead of looking down though, we’re looking forward to seeing more of the world after this has run its course.
If you want to gaze out over the vineyards of Alazani Valley – a glass of amber wine in hand – and enjoy the majestic vistas of the Caucasus, then it’s time to take a journey to Kakheti, the most important wine region of Georgia – a land whose breathtaking landscape will leave you as tipsy as its wine.This journey will take you back in time to introduce you to the most ancient winemaking techniques and let you taste unique wine.
Given its proximity to Russia, it might be tempting to dismiss Georgian food as heavy, stodgy and bland. But nothing could be further from the truth. As any traveller to Georgia will tell you, the country’s unique cuisine, wine culture and the ritual of the supra (Georgian feast) are all highlights.
