Armenians claim their wine comes from Noah while the Georgians claim the better vintages. On this program you will get to see (and taste) for yourself. Your hotels are the best in each country although one might be new and owned by an American entrepreneur while another may still retain some of the style of the former Soviet Union.

Armenia is one of the few secrets left in the world, as well as one of the most thrilling. Since the earliest days of recorded history, Armenia has been a cultural crossroad between east and west, north and south. Winning independence from the Assyrian empire in biblical times allowed the development of a culture both dynamic and unique. Amid pagan and then Muslim neighbors, becoming the first country in the world (including Rome) to declare Christianity as its national faith, allowed Armenians to retain their unique identity through hundreds of years of occupation. Over its 1,700 years of Christianity, cathedrals and monasteries were built and many of them still stand today. But Armenia also has a modern face from the concerts, galleries, cafes, bars and nightclubs of Yerevan. When contrasted with the sheer scope of the mountains surrounding Lake Sevan and monuments older than the pyramids it’s not hard to be carried away with all that Armenia has to offer.
