Excellent place to learn Georgian culture and history of wine-making. Strongly recommend to take a guide. It is very interesting place, and you will learn a lot about Georgia. There is master class for preparation of Georian bread and khachapuri.

I was not impressed here. Some of the buildings were closed because supposedly the person that sits there all day, had their day off? So they dont give their keys to someone else to open the building? Most interesting by far was the underground house,...More
