Tsinandali Estate is the cradle of classical winemaking of Georgia, the place where Georgian wine was first bottled. Located in the heartland of wine producing region of Kakheti it was among domains of Chavchavadze princely family for centuries, but true revival of the Estate is linked with the name of Prince Alexander Chavchavadze (1786-1846) poet, public benefactor and military figure.
Under Prince Alexander Chavchavadze Tsinandali Estate on the one hand continued 8000 year long tradition of Georgian winemaking while at the same time creating standard of modern technological approach. Today this noble tradition continues and ancient Qvevri and classical European winemaking still coexist.
Tsinandali Estate to this day focuses on the quality rather than quantity of wines. Its iconic wines include signature red Saperavi and namesake white Tsinandali among others.
Unique vineyard is bordered by canyons and forest creating detached territory with superb terroir planted with 11 Georgian vine varietals, allowing Prince Alexander’s legacy as a creator of modern Georgian winemaking to live on and Tsinandali Estate still to offer best of Georgian wines.
