farewell day

So after our brief time out we headed back to meet the group in Signagi via a hired car... we met them at lunch in the Pheasant's Tears vineyard along with winemaker John Wurdeman.

we have a few bites (Phil isn't really eating and we did have a light lunch before we left Tbilisi)  We check into the hotel and shortly thereafter we are off to dinner - the farewell dinner at the Pheasant's Tears restaurant in Signagi - Much feasting and rejoicing and toasting and singing etc...

so here are the last dinner photos!

we saw a bread baking demo before going off to the dining room-

the evening's entertainment - singing and playing and some dancing as well- a video follows os you can hear the porcine instrument he is playing-

The next day we headed back to Tbilisi but had one last wine stop and one more church stop - Oh and I failed to mention the last lunch stop as well...LOL

Signagi is lovely when not overrun by weekend tourism...

the church of the morning

and one more winery - French guys making sparkling wine but not in methode champenoise- 

and finally a late lunch on the outskirts of Tbilisi - excellent food - good kebabs and amazing mushrooms and a wonderful profiterole dessert...

we arrived in town while it was still daylight! a miracle! so not hungry - packed and showered and got ready for our 2 AM pickup for our 4 AM flight to Warsaw and the seven hour layover before the flight to Chicago - we arrived Sunday night a 8PM and headed home as worn out from this trip as we have ever been!  But by the second day home we were out again - as you will shortly read LOL! Stay tuned.
