Kakheti region ready for the vintage
19 September, 2016
When it comes to the harvest, known as rtveli in Georgian, first thing that comes to one’s mind is a vineyard that can be met almost in every region of the country, especially in Kakheti. Usually the tradition of harvesting takes place in September and it is always fun. Once you travel to Georgia at the beginning of autumn don’t miss the chance to take part in rtveli, since it will be one of the most memorable and enjoyable things that you would do during your lifetime. As a rule, harvesting crops, grapes, fruit and vegetables, is followed by winemaking process, such as extracting juice from grapes, also fresh churchkhela (Georgian candy with grape juice and nuts) is made and of course the day ends up with traditional Georgian supra and delicious barbecue called mtsvadi. This photo by our reader Mari Chkoidze depicts one of such vineyards in Georgia’s Kakheti region.
