    Very professional
    I am not a great fan of group tours in wineries, but Khareba does it exceptionally well. It is true, you have to wait a while until they gather enough people in your language, it is cold in the tunnel and you only get a few sips. But our tour guide was passionate and very professional ; he made sure we had a good understanding of the qvevri process. I was then taken to the vineyards, where a delightful young lady got me to pick a bucket of grapes, which I then trampled by foot while a traditional male choir belted out a Georgian song. All good fun and a memorable experience !

    Comprehensive and unique tour/wine tasting
    On the tour, you will learn so much about the traditional wine making process in Georgia (and the traditions still carried on today). Informative and knowledgeable staff guide you and can ask any questions you may have. Upon arrival we had the privilege of a Georgian folk performance welcoming us. Going into the tunnels is a little chilly but they offer blankets to wrap up in for the walk. We tasted a few wines with cheese, bread, and grape seed oil which is also produced here. Excellent tour and experience! Be sure to buy a bottle of wine to take home on your way out.

    Best tasting experience on our trip
    Very nice tasting experience. They had good selection of cheeses and nuts and good bread to accompany and a funny and chatty guide that actually knew how to speak english to the guest s too, not just read the script. Wines were good and the tunnel environment was quite unique. They also have a nice, a bit expensive in Kvareli standards, restaurant upstairs.

The visit started from a pleasant offer by a man in a golf car to pick me up from the parking.
There guides is English, Russian.
At the entry, an ensemble in national cloth will orchestrate a short song in Georgian.
The guide explains the history of the winery and local winemaking. The regular tasting includes only 2 wines, the price is 15 GEL per person. The wine is OK, but nothing special. The award winning wine is not included in the tasting, which is disappointing.

Quite an amazing place. We had a tour of the tunnels which included a tasting session of the wine and the chacha. There was also a bbq tasting session at the end.

As part of our group tour we stayed for lunch too which was in the restaurant up the hill - taken there by a large golf buggy.

Exceptional!
Me and my wife got to this place almost accidentally, but now I’m happy we did. We were visiting in Kvareli lake resort for my cousin’s wedding and wanted to have a lunch somewhere on the way. We saw there is a restaurant and a tour in the vineyard for tourists, it looked interesting so we came.
The tour was really fun and interesting. They let you taste many traditional wines, I personally don’t drink alcohol, but my wife does and she really liked it, she even bought 2 bottles of some wines she liked. I tasted some cheeses, breads and high quality oil from grape seeds - we enjoyed it a lot.
And of course- The restaurant, is just lovely! Not only the food, but also a very beautiful interior design of the place, and the staff- wow, they are really pleasant and kind.
And at the top of point they have an observatory with amazing view. Also somehow the place is not expensive, I mean, we were eating in many restaurants in Georgia, and the prices here are pretty much average, but the experience is way above the average.

Obviously, I highly recommend this place!

Great place to have a rest from busy towny athmosphere. Tunnel which is made for tours and tourists is short itself but there you can degustate several great types of wine. And try Homemade Grapeseed Oil, which was Excellent is not sold elsewhere, I bought several bottles.

For people who like to know more about Georgia wine "Khareba winery" is the best place to go. Packages suitable for anyone🙂. Friendly staff, affordable, place is well preserve.
If you need English tour guide most recommend Doia.

An absolute pleasure to arrive at this scenic winery and we were greeted with song. There are lots of options you can choose from to enjoy your experience here, we had a tour and tasted 2 wines. It is cool in the tunnels but blankets are available. Great fun, great information and an amazing place to be.

entrance fee to the tunnel with one glass of wine taste is 6 GEL. The tunnel was only 50 meters long, nothing to see, except wine bottles with dust. the wine taste was only one sip of wine not even enough to have the taste. the whole tour last approx 10 minutes, one group after the other. the only highlight was to see, how georgian bread and churchela was made. all together not worth to go there.
