Family Chubinidze – beautiful handcrafted clay pots and wicker baskets, visible everywhere while driving through Zestafoni municipality, are like a trademark of the district. The family of Chubinidze lives from selling baskets and homemade cheese. They live in the Tabakini Village, which lies on the way to the beautiful Tabakini Monastery built in the 7th century, and it is also close to another amazing monastery located in Ubisa. If you really want to distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of daily life, you should definitely visit them. Although the family does not have much, they have big hearts and are always happy to host somebody in their house. They own few cows, and from their milk they prepare delicious Imeretian cheese. While staying with them, not only will you have a chance to try this delicacy, but you will also be taught how to make it. If you want, you can also learn from Mrs. Chubinidze how to make wicker baskets. The surrounding area is perfect for trekking in a peaceful, countryside atmosphere.
