No trip to Georgia is complete without spending some time in the Kakheti region, better known as Georgian wine country! Located in eastern Georgia, Kakheti can be visited on a day trip from Tbilisi, but make sure you spend some time in the country’s beautiful capital before taking off on your side trips. Tbilisi has much to offer travelers!
If you love wine (like us!) you should try to spend at least a couple of days exploring the Kakheti region. We spent two nights each in Sighnaghi and Telavi, which were perfect hubs for day trips.
Experience Georgian hospitality eating delicious traditional home-cooked food with local families, toasted with plenty of wine – the Georgian way! From its green valley’s spread with vineyards to its old churches and watchtowers perched in fantastic mountain scenery, Georgia is one of the most beautiful countries on earth and a marvelous canvas for walkers, horse riders, cyclists, skiers, rafters and travelers of every kind.
Kakheti is a region formed in the 1990s in eastern Georgia from the historical province of Kakheti and the small, mountainous province of Tusheti. Telavi is its capital. The region comprises eight administrative districts: Telavi, Gurjaani, Qvareli, Sagarejo, Dedoplistsqaro, Signagi, Lagodekhi and Akhmeta.
