TBILISI, December 25 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia is ready to receive Russian experts to study the process of wine-making and assess the quality of Georgian wines, Georgian Minister of Agriculture David Kirvalidze told journalists on Tuesday.
“In case Russia accepts this invitation, Georgia is ready to receive Russian experts and offer all possible assistance,” he noted.
According to the minister, later this week, officials from the Georgian ministry of agriculture plan to meet with wine makers to discuss procedures to facilitate the entry of Georgian wines on the Russian market. After this meeting, a delegation of wine makers, officials from Georgia’s Exports and Imports Agency and the Vine and Wine Department will be formed. “We will try to organize a meeting between our delegation and representatives of the Russian side to look into details and a possible date for lifting Russia’s ban on Georgian wine imports,” he said.
Earlier, Kirvalidze said that the quality of Georgian wines had improved considerably in the recent years. “It is impossible that Georgian wine exported to the European Union market could be inferior to Russia’s standards,” he then said. “The Georgian state strictly controls the quality of domestic wines and takes efforts to fight against counterfeit.”
