What you can expect

Kakheti is the largest region of Georgia. It is one of the diverse regions, but it is also known to everyone, that Kakheti is the land of Grapes. The fifth part of vineyards in the nation belong to Kakheti, while grapes grown here amount to the half of the grape harvest in the country.
Archaological findings have suggested that wine has been produced here for several thousand years. Almost every village in Kaketi is well known for its own sort of wine, such as Kindzmarauli, Akhasheni, Teliani, Mukuzani. Wines are named after the places where they are produced.
As soon as you get close to Kakheti, on the way the smell of hot, freshly baked traditional Shoti . Shoti ( ocal special bread, kind of long pointed loaf) is traditionally baked in a deep circular clay oven called tone .
Signagi- city of love, is the heart of the most picturesque corner of Kakheti. In 2005-2008 Signagi underwent a fundamental rehabilitation programme. Infrastructure was changed, the streets renovated, buildings were given those centuries-old, historical, most pretty appearance .Here you can see several museums, namely, Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, which houses a unique collection of a self-educated artist, Niko Pirosmanishvili.
Sighnaghi has wonderful views on the Alazani valley and the Caucasus Mountains.
At 2 km away from Signagi is the nunnery of St.Nino and episcopal centre of Bodbe Eparchy. The monastery was built in the IV century on the tomb of St. Nino, who baptized Georgia. Bodbe is home to active monastic life.
