Introducing Kakheti

The eastern region of Kakheti (კახეთი) is Georgia’s premier wine-producing region. Almost everywhere you go here, you’ll be invited to drink a glass of wine and it’s easy to find yourself wandering around in a semipermanent mellow haze.

Kakheti is also rich in history and was an independent or semi-independent kingdom for long periods. Here you’ll find the incredible monastery complex of Davit Gareja, the picturesque hilltop town of Sighnaghi, and many beautiful churches, castles and mansions around the main town, Telavi.
