TBILISI, April 1 (Itar-Tass) – A second group of specialists from Russia’s Rospotrebnadzor consumer rights watchdog will inspect 35 Georgian wine-making companies that were not checked during its first visit, sources from the Georgian National Wine Agency told Tass on Monday.
They said that during their visit to Georgia, Russian specialists will also “familiarize themselves with the activity of two wine laboratories”.
The first group of Rospotrebnadzor specialists visited Georgia from February 25 to March 1 and checked 37 local winemakers and four companies producing mineral water.
As a result, 36 wine producers and four companies producing mineral water have got the right to export their products to Russia and are now undergoing the procedure of registration in Russia. It is expected that first export batches of Georgian wine will go to Russia in May.
Also on Monday, Georgian Agriculture Minister David Kirvalidze expressed optimism about prospects to resume this year exports of Georgian agricultural products to Russia.
