Tabla and Supra
TBILISI - KAKHETI - KAZBEGI - BORJOMI - VARDZIA - TBILISI - JULY 2021 (tent.)
Join Tabla owners Laura and Jonathan Nelms - and their friends from Living Roots Travel in Georgia - for a 10-day trip to the birthplace of wine, the home of khinkali & khachapuri, and the place where hospitality is practically a religion. We’ll start in the capital, Tbilisi, the city National Geographic called “the world’s most Bohemian city,” where we will visit the underground wine bars, funky flea markets, and top restaurants defining this astonishing capital.
Next, we’ll head for Georgia’s main wine region, Kakheti, where we will taste wines and dine with the winemakers at several of Georgia’s top labels, including Pheasant’s Tears, Lapati, and more! We’ll even visit one of Georgia’s few remaining qvevri-masters, responsible for hand-making the giant clay vessels where Georgian grapes become Georgian wines.
From there, we will head to Kazbegi (see above) where the beauty of the mountains will stop you in your tracks. But not for long. We’ll hike (or go by 4x4) up to the Gergeti Trinity Church to burn off our khachapuri and take some breathtaking pictures. On the way back to Tbilisi, we’ll spend a couple of days exploring Borjomi, home of Georgia’s iconic mineral water, and the Vardzia cave complex.
