Saakashvili: Georgia has gained from the Russian embargo on the import of wine
According to Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili, after the Russian embargo on imports of Georgian wine its export to other countries has increased many times over. "For example, earlier we had hardly exported a million bottles to Ukraine, this year we'll export up to eight million, and in the future - up to 10 million bottles. Also, there is an increase in exports to Belarus and other countries" - Trend quoted Saakashvili. Last weekend the head of Sakartvelo had examined "Adjara House of Wine" which is under construction in Kedah.
The company, in addition to the winery, has its own vineyard, which cultivates grapes Chkhaveri. In addition, the company has its own tasting rooms, wine cellars and even a restaurant.
"This is the best Georgian wine, I have ever tasted. Chkhaveri will be a serious competitor to well-known Georgian and European varieties of the vines" - Saakashvili said.
Construction of an industrial complex began in September last year. It should open in about a month, assured the Georgian president.
The "Adjara House of Wine" will bottle such wines as Chkhaveri, Tsolikauri and sparkling wines by the Georgian and European technologies. The company intends to produce about 100 thousand bottles of wine a year.
In addition, authorities intend to promote wine tourism in these areas of Sakartvelo. Guests will be able to visit vineyard and the Georgian marani (wine cellar). In addition, there will be organized tours to the produce where you can watch the process of bottling wine in the bottles and then - to try the wine.
