We visited Numisi’s as the first stop on a winery tour of Karkheti. The museum is run by a couple, and the woman took us on a great tour of the grounds, wine cellar, and house museum. We learned a ton about traditional wine making and got to see many cool artifacts from the region and beyond. After our tour, we enjoyed a lovely wine tasting of their homemade wines and cognac. It seems like lunch is also available if you arrange in advance, but we had other lunch plans so didn’t stay. Their wine and cognac are available to purchase as well.

The woman was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Her English was only okay, so I recommend coming with someone who can translate either Russian or Georgian (our group had both). However, I do really recommend coming - it’s not too far from Signagi and was a good value. A very unique and local-feeling experience!

Visited here with a small group tour, the visit was in two main parts, first the visit to the winery itself to see what the history was around the wine making. This was very interesting and we had a very good english speaking guide for this. We were able to see the actual Qvevri in the ground and the process was explained well to us. The qvevri were of differing sizes and there was also a plan posted on the wall. At the upper level was like a time machine of all kinds of old technology, harking back to the old soviet era. TVs, radios, typewriters, all kinds of gadgets.
Following that we had the chance to watch a lady make the local shoti bread. We watched her rolling out the dough and then smacking it in the side of a preheated original furnace oven. The actual process did not take long and soon we were able to tuck into some of the lovely cooked bread.
Well presented and well worth the visit.

The story goes that this cellar dates back to the 16th century, but got forgotten during Soviet times, only to be rediscovered recently. The cellar itself is interesting with its damp storage, limestone press and 33 qvevris. But the rest of the house, which I was guided through room-by-room, looks like a second hand market of brick a brack : old carpets, furniture, TV's, dresses, typewriters, . . . Some people may find this interesting, but it does not appeal to me at all.
PS The wine I sampled was qvevri, which is an acquired taste. Their chacha and cognac were excellent.

This place has some old evidence of wine production, they give a brief explanation of the wine production. Considering its meant to only have Quervi (Georgian technique) production, actually you dont get to try any. I wouldnt be in a hurry to go back here, as it was wine with the dinner they sold you, it wasnt wine tasting, and no idea if they produced it. Felt a bit of a con, although not having been to other wine production sites in the area nothing to compare it to if its the norm.

This is a winery that claims it is 500 or so years old. From the qvevri embedded in the floor, one can't really disagree.
We received a very instructive tour of the premises, which is a working winery using the traditional qvevri (large ceramic jars buried in the ground) method. The wine making process was fully explained as well as the implements used. It is amazing how the qvevri method can produce good, drinkable wines.
The winery has an old world charm. We enjoyed walking around and imbibing the atmosphere.
You can purchase the wine produced here. The grounds are compact but pleasant to walk through.

The place is beautiful and full of historical information. The guide was very informative and made it fun for us. This place is my favorite and I would deffo come back. Their wine samples are great and their chacha is so smooth. Their chacha is the only chacha i did like and had too many shots after. 😂 The restaurant is so nice and place looks like you’re inside the family kitchen with your grandma. Smells good. Too bad we didn’t eat here because we need to visit more and we are running out of time.

Its a must visit!!

Best winery we visited here. Got a really good idea of how they made the wine and also they showed us cha cha making and we got to try some fresh. Very generous and reasonably priced tasting and the was really really kind. This stop is certainly a must.
