Our most off-track and unique itineraries are only for those looking to venture way off the tourist trail and discover small batch wines that you will never have tasted and likely never taste again.
All our wine explorer trips visit locations our regular tours do not, often heading to places that wine tourism has barely reached. It is not uncommon for some of our hosts to be hosting English speaking guests for the very first time.
Each trip is hosted by Tommo (tour company founder) as well as a local Georgian guide. You’ll get the local and expat perspective on life, travel and wine in Georgia. Each of these trips is entirely unique, has never been run before and never will be again. Like a rare vintage, explorer tours exist in ultimate finitude.
Inspiring and surprising cuisine, amazing hospitality and one-of-a-kind wine experiences all await you in the least touristy corners of the oldest wine producing country on Earth.
Join Tommo on one of our specialist tours. Places are very limited, with normally a maximum of 5 to 12 guests. We typically only run explorers tours once a month, or less. In addition, we have a few special one-off annual tours that we run every year.
The approximate itineraries / regions are listed below. On the whole, these are more like mystery tours, so we don’t reveal every detail in advance. We promise it will be an adventure. and there will be a lot of food and wine!
