The small citadel of Sighnaghi in Kakheti is a must-visit while you're in the famous wine region, overlooking the expanse of the Alazani Valley and the snow-capped mountains beyond. A street market, city walls, a well-stocked museum and the nearby St Nino Nunnery (including the tomb of legendary St Nino herself) guarantee there is plenty here to keep you and your family busy for a day.
Then, when you get hungry, head along the cobbles to Pheasant's Tears restaurant.
Set in a homely wine cellar, with friendly multi-lingual staff, the Pheasant's Tears kitchen is constantly stocked with fresh food from the local markets. Their head chef, Gia Rokashvili, a local Sighnaghian, can offer you the delights not only of a traditional Georgian table but also a delectable selection of fusion dishes. Veggie and meat lovers are equally catered for!
An added bonus- the wine tasting! "Wine made with nothing added, nothing taken away" is their philosophy, and one well worth enjoying while you're there!
