Pick up from the Batumi hotel.
Drive to Keda, a mountainous town of Adjara, located at the mid reaches of the Adjaristskali river. Our first wine spot is ‘’Adjarian Wine House’’, the largest wine factory in the region. It played an important role in developing viticulture in Adjara. The factory produces 6 sorts of wine with traditional technology. The sightseeing includes vineyard, factory, enotheque and of course, wine tasting as well.
Our next stop is in Makhuntseti village for Makhuntseti waterfall and arch bridge sightseeings. The height of the waterfall is 50 m, falling from a rocky ledge and joining to Adjaristskhali river. The Makhuntseti stone bridge over the river is 24 m and belongs to medieval (12th c.) Queen Tamar`s arch Bridge types.
Afterward, head to Varjanisi village to our next wine spot – ‘’Chateau Iveri’’. The local winery aims to revive viticulture in the region by cultivating indigenous grape varieties and continuing vine making traditions. The excursion starts with visiting the vineyards and introduction to the local winemaking methods. As a final highlight at Varjanisi, have a tasting of one white and two red types of wine (‘’Tsolikauri’’, ‘’Chkhaveri’’, ‘’Satsuri’’), and a Georgian lunch.
Eventually, drive back to Batumi and visit the ‘’Garage’’ wine bar. Have a masterclass of Georgian wine and cheese tasting. You can get acquainted with Georgian wine and cheese history, how to pair Georgian cuisine with its wine and characteristics of bio-organic wine.
