It is the place where so-called golden fund of wines are, their name are connected to the place where are they mostly found. For example : Kindzmarauli, Akhasheni, Mukuzani. Alazani Valley is slightly warmer than the rest of Kakheti, and so the grapes tend to get riper and more sweet. The region's main grape variety is Rkatsiteli, which means "red stem", and it is made in a semi-sweet style that starts out with a light straw color, and grows more golden as the wines age. It is common to pair these wines with dessert or fruit and cheese courses. To get to Allazani valley you should use the route of Gombori range the highest mountain being at 1,991 m above sea level.

At the end of the XIX century Alaverdi Cathedral was completely whitewashed inside. After clearing the walls (1966) several layers of painting were revealed: The first and most important are the fragments of the XI century painting. The frescoes of XV-XVI centuries have remained on the southern walls and XVI-XVII centuries frescoes on the western and northern walls. Next not less important spot on our way is Ikalto Monastery, which was founded in the 6th century but now we can see only 8th century remains. There was an academy where according to a legend the famous 12th century Georgian poet Shota Rustaveli studied. Ikalto Academy was the highest educational institution in Georgia during XI-XII centuries. This is confirmed by the ruins of the building that remain in the monastery yard, which are more like the construction of secular-purpose building than the monastery. The ruins are visible on the base. Ikalto academy mastered theology, rhetoric, astronomy, philosophy, geography, geometry, chanting, etc. In addition to the theoretical courses, pupils studied metal processing, ceramic production, viticulture and winemaking, pharmacology and others.
