A Day of Wine and Churches

Today was spent in east Georgia which is the wine producing area of the country. During the Soviet era, wine was a major export. They are trying to reestablish that industry.
Wine according to some history originated in this area. Much of the early history of Georgia is also tied to the area around Tevli, thus the many churches, monasteries, and academic centers.

This church is what remains of a city that was a capital before the Persian invaded the country in the 12th cent.
