Tsinandali Palace and Wine Sampling

It was 2010, when I last visited Tsinandali; I was then attending the exhibition of Salvador Dali works and wine sampling.

Tsinandali is a small village in Kakheti, Georgia – 79 km east of the Capital Tiflis.

For brief introduction of Tsinandali Palace, I can say that it belonged to one of the noble families of XIX century Georgia – The Chavchavadze Family;

This was the place where prominent people of various countries met each other, the place uniting art, literature, music, winemaking, gardening . . .

Tsinandali Palace was famous for  its winery – the oldest and largest winery in Georgia, combining European and Georgian winemaking traditions and for its garden planned by European designers and being stretched on 12  h; 150 plantations from 400 in total, are exotic, brought from foreign countries, the Garden was even compared to Richmond Park and Alexander Dumas mentioned it as the Garden of Eden.

Presently this brilliant place is the Palace-Museum and is used for various events, such as wine fests, exhibitions, conserts, cheese festival, etc.
