This is a short recap of our travels to the region of Kakheti in September 2017.

I've got many times asked this question - what's the best time to visit Georgia? In short - it depends.

Among the many reasons to visit Georgia, I would recommend it during the rtveli time (grape harvesting) around September, see: Grape Harvest Rtveli in Georgia (Region of Kakheti)

As for this trip, we took a driver from Tbilisi (Book your driver here), headed to Chateau Eniseli and for the rest, see map and itinerary below.
