I have really enjoyed the tour with all its details.The facility, the team who hosted us and the tasting.

What I really enjoyed the most was the company of Mr. Nasimi. A professional tour guide with excellent knowledge about wine and the history of Azerbaijan in general.

All the stops we had on our way and the food/tea were amazing.

I really recommend this tour with Mr. Nasimi and the driver Mr. Ali.

Nasimi took us on a wonderful tour of the Savalan Winery in Azerbaijan. We were very impressed not only with his wine knowledgeable but also the sophistication of the Savalan winery- a relatively new facility. Because Savalan worked with Italian winemakers to develop their wine, we were very familiar with their varietal wines. They set up a wonderful private tasting in their beautiful tasting room and allowed us to taste a large variety of wines, We purchased two bottles, one a grappa, that we found to be the smoothest grappa we had ever tasted. We are from California, so that says a lot. On the way, we stopped at a lovely lake and were serenaded by an ude player and tasted some delicious paklava. We also stopped for a deliciuos late lunch at a beautiful outdoor restaurant by a river. We highly recommend Nasimi!

I can’t speak highly enough of Nasimi’s wine tour. It really was the best thing we did in Azerbaijan. Nasimi is a great guy with perfect English who explained everything about everything, not just wine. We thoroughly pestered him with questions about all the interesting things we saw along the way to the vineyard.

It was a very long day out - three and a half hours each way - but it was really worth it, as we saw so much beautiful scenery along the way, including a change from desert to mountains and valleys with lush greenery. We stopped for tea at a lake, then had lots of nibbly bits at the winery, along with plenty of wines. On the way back, we had a delicious lunch of traditional Azeri food then later, Nasimi even stopped for corn on the cob at a roadside stall, when we expressed an interest in it.

It was a thoroughly excellent tour and if I ever go back to Azerbaijan (which I am hoping to), I will certainly use Nasimi again.

As a final note, the wines we bought at the winery were absolutely delicious. All in all, a fabulous day out.

An excellent well organised tour by Nasimi that introduced my family to a whole array of delicious local wines and food. If I could rate him 7 out of 5 I would definitely give it. A recommended tour operator to plan a wine tour that explores unique wines and cuisines of Azerbaijan.

I notice that everyone else who has reviewed Nasimi’s Wine Tours have given the tour a five star rating, and no wonder! He is obviously consistently providing the highest level of service, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about Azerbaijan and their efforts to re-establish vineyards in the oldest wine producing region in the world.

Nasimi is passionate about Azerbaijan - its country, its culture and its wine, and he is keen to show this off to as many people as possible. He is keen to make this company and these tours a success, and I would urge you to support him in this mission. He is very good at his job and has a fantastic country to show off.

We were driven up to Qabala in a very comfortable Mercedes, and it is a lovely drive - passing beautiful barren landscapes before climbing to the edges of the Caucasian Mountains - covered in snow in late April. On the way, Nasimi filled us in on a brief history of Azerbaijan, and answered all our endless questions.

We stopped along the way to try some dried sour fruit disks - memories of Nasimi’s childhood - and some Azeri tea cooked on a traditional wood fired urn.

Nohurgol Lake is quite a touristy spot but still a beautiful lake with the surrounding mountains - and the tea and baklava provided were excellent, and provided sustenance for the remainder of the journey.

We arrived at the Savalan Vineyard in good time, and were shown round by the manager and an interpreter. It is a very impressive operation, with significant Italian investment, and clearly a profound passion for wine craft. The factory and vineyards were quiet at that time of year, but it was still interesting to see, and the small on site museum was well presented and interesting.

The wine tasting itself was fun, and really well presented and informative. There was plenty of wines to taste, as well as Grappas and Brandies. They have produced an impressive array of different wines in a short space of time, and are clearly still growing and developing. They are certainly a match for European and New World wines, and hopefully it will not be long before they gain acceptance in ‘the West’.

After the tasting, we stopped off in another quite touristy resort (I am not sure there are any other alternatives!) in Qabala, for a delicious and authentic Azeri lunch. The food was really excellent and tasty, and the service good.

After that, time for the long drive back to Baku, where Nasimi was happy to organise for us to be transferred straight to the airport in time to catch our flight home. It was a fantastic day out, and we were so glad to have the privilege and opportunity to see a whole lot more of Azerbaijan other than Baku (which was amazing in itself!).

A final word for Nasimi’s communications which were professional, helpful and informative throughout. We ended up using Nasimi as our own ad hoc travel agent for advice on food, restaurants and places to go - even though these were nothing to do with his tours. He just wanted us to enjoy and embrace his wonderful country - and we did! Thank you.

We have visited the Savalan Winery in late March and the factory was in the audit process. Despite this fact, Guide Manager Gafur was very generous and organized the visit of vineyards and factory premises. He was telling the story of the company and patiently answering all of our questions. In the end, he organized the wine tasting ceremony, which was very interesting. Gafur shared his knowledge about the tasting practices and how to use the different sorts of wines.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Qabala wine tour. It was a private tour, so we felt valued as guests and really learnt a lot! Nasimi was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable and personable, it was like being on a day trip with a friend. The Savalan Winery was brilliant and every wine we tried was absolutely divine - we ended up taking several bottles home with us! If you like wine and are visiting Baku, I strongly recommend booking this tour! :)

We had a fantastic day on this wine tour. It was fascinating to see how the countryside varied after leaving Baku. Our transport was very comfortable and our guide was delightful. She was knowledgeable, informative and taught us alot about the country. The APSI winery producing Savalan wines was very interesting, in a wonderful location. The tasting we had was brilliant and the wines were of consistent high quality, we bought some and wished we could have fitted more in our luggage.
Overall a most memorable day
