Tabla & Supra
Join Supra owners Laura and Jonathan Nelms - and their friends from Living Roots Travel - for a 10-day trip to the birthplace of wine, khinkali, and khachapuri, where hospitality is practically a religion
No trip to Georgia is complete without wine, but this trip is special: we’re going to spend at least one day getting our hands dirty, as we help out with the grape harvest and see up-close how grapes go from the vineyard to the qvevri.
The trip starts in Tbilisi, the city National Geographic called “the world’s most Bohemian city.” There we’ll visit the underground wine bars, funky flea markets, and top restaurants defining this astonishing capital.
From the capital, we head west, where centuries-old wine traditions are rebounding from the damage done by the Soviet period. In Imereti, we’ll spend a day in the village of Obcha with rising stars of the wine world, Baia and Gvantsa Abuladze.
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 breathtaking pictures.
On the way back to Tbilisi, we’ll spend a couple of days in Kakheti, Georgia’s main wine region, where we will taste wines and dine with the winemakers at several of Georgia’s top labels, including Pheasant’s Tears, Lapati, and more!

Don’t know what a qvevri is? You will soon! Our trip will include a visit to one of Georgia’s top qvevri-makers, and you’ll see plenty in action at the various maranis (wineries) we visit.
