The eastern European nation of Georgia is being featured in B&R’s Places on the Verge (POV) program, for its ‘… potential for curious travellers and lovers of excellent food and wine, and as a destination on the brink of global popularity for tourism.’
“Georgia has certainly been on our minds, and for travellers familiar with our POV program, it offers an unbeatable mix of intriguing ancient history, immersive cultural elements and rewarding activity across the entire country,” says Chris Mark, B&R’s Director, Central & Eastern Europe.
The 10-day trip covers must-visit regions in Georgia, with a heavy focus on wine-making and tantalising tastings. Not only is Georgia home to some of the oldest traces of wine production (dating back to 8,000 BC), the Kakheti wine region offers tasting experiences in diverse settings such as the Alaverdi Monastery and Orgo Winery. Travellers will also visit Chateau Mukrani, one of Georgia’s oldest and most prestigious wineries, before being welcomed in to the home of a small family-owned winery on the way to Borjomi.
The 10 days/9 nights Georgia POV trip runs in September 2018, from AUD$9,480, with single supplements starting at AUD$1,265.
