MOSCOW, March 15, 16:26 /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea is ready to supply 2,000,000 champagne bottles to Russia this year, Crimea's news agency Kryminform said on Saturday, referring to the director of the winery Novy Svet, Yanina Pavlenko.
"This year, we are ready to sell and deliver two million bottles of classic champagne to the Russian Federation. A contract with Russian partners has been signed this week", she said.
The director believes if the result of the March 16 referendum on the joining to Russia is positive, new prospects will open for the winery. Novy Svet products always were popular and valued in Russia, she noted. There would be no need to prepare a mass of documentation, export licenses and export excises. This would lower the prices for consumers in Russia, she added.
The Novy Svet winery was founded by duke Lev Golitsyn in 1878. Since the time, sparkling wine has been produced here according to the classic French technology.
