Gennady Onishchenko, the head of the Rospotrebnadzor stated that he had saved the ancient culture of winemaking in Georgia by barring the export of counterfeit products under the brand name of Georgian wine to Russia, the Echo Moskvy reported.
"I can almost say with certainty that I must become the honored worker of culture of Kakheti. I have saved the ancient culture of wine, which is inherent in this region of the current Georgian. Because everything was full of fakes and unqualified drinks, sold under the guise of the Georgian wines", the head of health department of Russia said.
According to Onishchenko, previously Georgian wine producers exploited Soviet brands. "Those people who came into wine business in Georgia, did not keep the tradition, but just came to snatch a large sum", the head of Rospotrebnadzor said.
According to RIA Novosti, Onishchenko stressed that the introduction of prohibition for the supply of Georgian wine to Russia was "amputation, we had to cut about two-thirds of the liquor, which is spinning in our business".
