Georgia is recognized as the cradle of wine, wine making was born on this fertile land 8000 years ago. In Georgia wine is produced using modern European technologies as according to ancient traditions in clay wine jars – Kvevri. There are plenty of pretty famous Georgian wines, mostly from the Kakheti region, like Saperavi, Rkatsiteli, Kisi or Mukuzani, but very few know wines from western Georgia, which are very different. During our wine tour in Western Georgia, we will travel to the motherland of Khvanchkara wine and get familiar with other, very rare and unique wines.
The climate of the western parts of the country is humid. The wines here are lesser known compared to the eastern region. Yet, they have a unique flavor and class.
One of the smaller regions here is Imereti. There are many family-run winemaking businesses. The production happens on a small scale. The atmosphere is welcoming.
The Racha-Lechkhumi region in Western Georgia is famous for its numerous varieties of high-quality, juicy, sweet grapes, suitable for winemaking.
The Ambrolauri town has a single wine factory. Racha is known for producing the well-admired wine Khvanchkara. It also produces Tsulkidzis Tetra.
The vineyards on the slopes of Khvamli Mountain are the source of Usakhelauri grapes, the main ingredients in the production of Usakhelauri wine. The wine is considered to be the most expensive wine in Georgia.
The valleys of Khvamli Mountain are also rich in Tsolikauri grape plants, suitable for producing semi-sweet, smooth Tvishi wine.
