Wine making is an ancient tradition, and nowhere is that more evident than along the Black Sea. New Jersey-based Silk Road Treasure Tours, which specializes in travel along ancient Asian silk routes, has launched its first "Wine and Black Sea Tour of Georgia," an eight-day journey uncovering 8,000 years of wine-making traditions along the coast of the Black Sea. Nestled between Russia and Turkey in the Caucasus, Georgia is home to five wine regions. Guests will taste the wines of local wineries and monasteries, eat in local homes, visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and tour Tbilisi, Sighnaghi, Telavi, Mtskheta, Gori, Kutaisi and Batumi.

These are small-group tours with a hefty price tag, starting at $3,400 per person, but which includes stays in three- to five-star and boutique hotels, most meals, wine tastings, entrance fees and more. Check it all out as www.silkroadtreasuretours.com
