We say goodbye to the winery in Zeda Sazano and to the Imereti region and set off for Racha, another wine region.
Thanks to its southern exposure and moderate rainfall, some autochthonous grape varieties thrive there, whose grapes are highly valued for their high sugar content.
On the way, we visit one of the abandoned sanatoriums in Tsqaltubo, which during the Soviet time was one of the most popular health resorts. Even Stalin and his entourage sought rest there. Today Tsqaltubo is somewhere between decay, reconstruction, melancholy and hope – definitely one of the most interesting places in Georgia.
After a boat trip through the Prometheus Caves, we reach the region of Racha, where we visit a winemaker in Ambrolauri and taste his wines. For dinner and overnight stay, we drive to the small town of Oni, which is situated in the middle of the Racha mountains.
