The Tsinandali Festival began in 2019 under the auspices of the Silk Road Group, in the newly restored Tsinandali Estate. The estate was owned by Prince Alexander Chavchavadze in the early 1800s, a prominent figure of Georgian society, who turned his family home into a cultural-intellectual centre boasting a magnificent garden.
A polymath and polyglot, he was an excellent winemaker, poet, businessman, military figure, and the founder of Georgian Romantism. Under his patronage, Tsinandali became a place for local and international thinkers and artists to come together, including figures like Alexandre Dumas and Alexander Pushkin. All his achievements are associated with innovation and a constant striving for development.
With a vision of restoring the Estate to its former glory and its place in Georgia’s cultural heart, the Silk Road Group began a thorough restoration programme in 2006 and by 2019 was able to host the inaugural Festival, showcasing existing and emerging talent from across the globe.
