History of Tsinandali Estate

Tsinandali festival is intended to be staged in the unique
environment of Tsinandali.

The contribution of Chavchavadze family to the
Georgian culture is truly invaluable. A quick glance at
the XIX c. Georgia makes it clear that the visions and
strategies, which largely determined the development of
the country had originated in Tsinandali. The mansion
of the Chavchavadze family used to host discussions of
new literary, artistic and musical trends.Even some of
the political and economic issues were
considered there.

It was here in Tsinandali, some 230 years ago, that the
first Georgian European style wine was made and
traditional Qvevri was first bottled, which substantiated
Georgia’s transition from a wine making to a wine
exporter country.

Tsinandali Winery

The history of the Tsinandali Estate, as one of the most important centers of cultural life in Georgia, extends more than two hundred years into the past. In the time of Alexander Chavchavadze it was a must destination for musicians, writers, poets and other prominent foreigners visiting Georgia, as well as for local public figures. Its cultural traditions are still upheld in our own day. Since 2007 the Tsinandali Estate has been under the patronage and care of the Silk Road Group. Over the last decades the Company has invested tens of millions of GEL in the rehabilitation and development of the historic site and its adjacent areas. Thanks to the efforts of the Silk Road Group, the restored Alexander Chavchavadze Museum and its historic park continue to tell their story to contemporary and future generations of visitors.

The historic vineyards of the Tsinandali Estate have seen major renovations in recent years, to ensure the preservation of Tsinandali’s legacy as the cradle of Georgia’s classical winemaking. The Tsinandali Estate is the cradle of classical winemaking in Georgia, as it was here that Georgian wine was first bottled. Saperavi of 1841 and other 19th century historic vintages are still preserved at the Princely Oenotheque. Under Prince Alexander Chavchavadze, the Tsinandali Estate on the one hand continued the 8000-year-old tradition of Georgian winemaking, while at the same time creating the standards of the modern technological approach. Today this noble tradition continues, with ancient qvevri and classical European winemaking coexisting. The unique vineyard is bordered by canyons and forests, creating a detached territory with superb terroir, which is planted with 11 Georgian vine species, namely: Saperavi, Rkatsiteli, Mtsvane, Kisi, Khikhvi, Usakhelouri, Alexandrouli, Mujuretuli, Tsolikouri, Tetra and Ojaleshi. Among the Tsinandali Estate’s distinguished wines, one can find classic, full-bodied Saperavi intended for extensive ageing, bold, Frisky Rose, the first European style white of Georgia, the Estate’s namesake – Tsinandali and traditional Kakhetian qvevri Rkatsiteli. Everything the Tsinandali Estate utilizes to create its famous produce, be it Georgian Qvevri, French barriques or Italian machinery, is tailor-made for the Estate. The exquisite chacha distilling plant ensures a balance between the aroma and purity of genuine chacha.

Alexander Chavchavadze was born in 1786. His legacy as the creator of modern Georgian winemaking lives on and the Tsinandali Estate still offers the best of Georgian wines.
