Among the outstanding Georgian traditions, the harvest is one of the most important and old traditions that still lives on today. A Georgian cherishes vineyard, like his own child, dedicates all his effort and energy to it and when Autumn comes and grapes get ripe, the vine festival - harvest begins.

The harvest is a sort of holiday in Georgia. The country is considered to be the homeland of wine and has 8000-year-old continuous tradition of winemaking.
Therefore, picking and squeezing grapes is not only labor, but also a completely special ritual.
