Kakheti is the most important Georgian winemaking region. The vineyards giving the best quality wines are located in the Alazani and Iori basins, at 400-700 m asl, on humus-carbonate, black and alluvial soils.
Its still not really sure which people or tribe discovered the great invention of wine. However the oldest civilization that is known for its wine drinking were not the Romans or the ancient Greeks, but the Georgians.
Georgia’s easternmost region of Kakheti is a land of hospitable, open hearted and straightforward people who live surrounded by rugged mountains, ancient castles, magnificent churches, and drink wine to praise the almighty for each harvest of their nurtured grape yards.
