Tamada Tour Georgia



No other country has so tasty bread, as Georgia. Fruits are unusual and of wide assortment. In no other countries you can drink so wonderful wine and so much, as in Georgia
            Jean Chardin, the French traveler of the 17th c.

In Georgia Supra (dinner-table) has an ancient time traditions. The table is managed by toast-maker “Tamada”. Tamada is elected on democratic basis by table participants but he is the only monarch of the table. Tamada professionally manages the table – raises his glass of wine proposing a toast and telling about the history of country, its culture. He is full of witty, humor and cheerfulness. As soon as you display interest, knowledge and witty you’ll become the most desirable participant of the table. …And if you are able to drink enough wine and to have a competition with Tamada, so you have a chance to take management in your own hand and become Tamada. The toast proposed by Tamada is obligatory for any participant. After his toast you must propose toast yourself, extend or add his toast, give your own interpretation and if it is possible to drink the glass to bottom. You’ll be excited by Institute of Tamada. He will raise toast to your parents, children, family, and country accompanying his speech by Georgian folk songs singing. You will have a possibility to study Tamada’s traditions, become a bit tipsy, but get a belief that Georgian wine is exotic. You will fall in love at once, and get a willing to taste it again.
