About Events – Signagi Wine Festival
Signagi (Georgian: სიღნაღი) is a small, picturesque town situated in Georgia’s easternmost region of Kakheti, overlooking the Alazani Valley and facing the Greater Caucasus Mountains. The town is known for its wine production, carpet weaving, metal crafting, ceramics, wood carvings and leather work.
To celebrate its wine production, the town holds a wine festival in October each year.
Signagi residents and visitors are entertained by traditional dancing, live music, wine tasting, demonstrations of traditional crafts and locally made food and handicrafts.
In 2007, a government sponsored programme renovated the town, maintaining its original style of brick built houses, wooden fretwork balconies, cobblestones and wine cellars. Today, Signagi is called a town-museum because the architectural style that characterized it 200 years ago is still preserved there.
Signagi is one of Georgia’s smallest towns but its population swells during festivals.
