Go off the beaten track and discover the hidden Soviet treasures of Tbilisi. Soviet architecture is as unique as it can be peculiar and surreal. In order to totally dig into this Soviet structures and landscapes we solely use Soviet vehicles during our tours. We have Lada’s, Volga’s as well as Lada Niva’s. In our cars we take three people maximum per car.
During the Soviet Architecture & Wine tour you will also become an expert in Georgian wine & wine making. We visit the biggest winery, to get the basics of Georgian wine history down, but also small home winery’s. The passionate wine makers will tell you about the soul of Georgian wine making, and the way that they put that into practice.
This tour include; lunch, drinks for on the road and a guide/translator for every vehicle. Also the overnight in Sighnaghi, dinner and breakfast in the guesthouse are included in the price.
Tbilisi’s rawness is best discovered in some if its outskirts. The magnitude of Soviet blocs and the unique architecture that goes along with it. We will bring you to these Soviet jewels while you cruise through the undiscovered districts with your Soviet means of transportation. We visit the Chronicles of Georgia, the most special Soviet blocs, deserted USSR-era buildings and the abandoned Rustavi steel factory. At the end of the day we drive on to Sighnaghi. Here we spent the night in a small family guesthouse. Home grown & cooked food and homemade wines await us.
From Sighnaghi we head towards Telavi. We stop at our first winery; one of the biggest and oldest of Georgia. A perfect place to get some basic knowledge on Georgian winemaking. We drive on towards Telavi, where we visit a totally different winery, a small wine maker that operates from the home. The passion and small scale, yet very personal, will make it an experience to remember. Next up is a biodynamic winery. This winery is located at the foot of Alazani valley, overlooking wine fields and the Caucasus Mountains, truly a magical place. The wine maker believes in an all-natural process of winemaking. Examples: Sheep come in the winter to graze among the vines, only horses and hands are used to make this wine in a way that it has been done in Georgia for 8000 years. This is the real thing.
