Tbilisi Wine Tours – Wine Tasting Adventures in Tbilisi

Georgia is known as the cradle of wine and Tbilisi is the perfect place to get your first sip of the incredible drink that has been made in this country for over 8000 years. With so much to explore and so many ways to get completely lost – it’s a great idea to take a Tbilisi city tour with a local who can not only show you the tourist sites but also give you an insight into the best places for wine tasting in Tbilisi. Not all wine is made the same and if you’re a first timer you want to know you’re in good hands.

While many of you have probably tried white and red wines, did you know that Georgia is known for its amber wine, sometimes called orange wine? This is a white wine that has been left in contact with the skins for a longer period of time, giving the final product an orange or amber colour. Honestly, the age-old Georgian wine-making traditions are something worth learning about, and why not sip on a glass of wine (or 3) while you’re taking in 8000 years of winemaking history?

Tips for First-time Wine Tourists in Tbilisi

When to Go:

You can honestly do wine tasting tours in Tbilisi all year round, but Spring is a wonderful time to visit to taste all of the new seasons’ wines that were harvested the year before. Or maybe after a few wine tastings you’ll be ready to harvest some grapes yourself and help the winemakers make the wine – for that you need to be here from Late August to October for the Rtveli Harvest. But you will need to book a tour outside of Tbilisi for this experience.

Tbilisi is where the old-world charm of winemaking mingles with the bustle of a modern city. Whether you’re a seasoned sommelier or someone who doesn’t know their Saperavi from their Rkatsiteli, wine tasting in Tbilisi promises a bouquet of experiences, both for your palate and your soul.

So, raise your glass. Here’s to memorizing views, soul-stirring history, and wines that dance on your tongue in the city that loves wine as much as you do!

Cheers, or should we say, “Gaumarjos!” 🍷
