Is there a better way to spend a day than taking an exciting tour to a local winery in Azerbaijan? Our delicious half day wine tour in Baku is not only for wine and food lovers, but also for those who are interested in spend their time in nature.
The winery we are going to visit is Fireland Vineyards, located in Novkhani village of Absheron Peninsula. It is one of the few European style vineyards in the country. The unique natural conditions of the Absheron Peninsula make the grape varieties grown here particularly specific in terms of taste and quality. The vineyard itself is laying between two salty lakes. The soil here is very rich with minerals thanks to its the proximity to mud volcanoes.
Our multi-lingual guide and driver will pick you from the point agreed with you in advance. Our departure time is flexible as it is a fully private tour. However, considering the working hours of the winery and distance, we usually start our tours between 09:00 am. and 12:00 pm. It is about one hour drive to the winery from city center.
Upon arrival at the site, you will have an explanatory tour to the vineyards. The tour will also cover the red and white wine production process along with the degustation opportunity. Later, you will visit the winery, cellar and fermentation rooms. The wine aging takes place in barrels of French, American and Slovenian oak, as well as in stainless steel tanks.
Upon finishing our tour, it’s time to taste some more wines! We head to the tasting hall for the table of wines and different kind of snacks prepared for you. After tasting all wines possible along with the snacks like dried fruits, cheese plate, pita bread, organic vegetables and tomatoes and basil pesto, unfortunately, it is time to finish our wine tour. We leave the vinery for Baku. We can drop you to a location you need to get in city center of Baku or in pick-up location.
