I plan to visit Georgia (and perhaps Azerbaijan) around the middle of September for a couple of weeks, just for personal adventures. I am interested in photographing pilgrimages, feasts and other interesting events around the country and thus I am looking for good information.
I know that in Kakheti region is the grape harvest period and a good change to snap around several events. In particular, I read about the Alaverdoba festivity on 14 September (correct, or the date is different?) with people from mountain areas coming to celebrate. Is that good to document? Would be easy for me to move around the Kakheti region during the harvest period in order to find people in action for photography?
I would appreciate if you can give me more specific information about these events, dates and recommendations. Above all, for the harvest period in Khaketi which villages are best to visit.
Thanx in advance!
