"I ask the municipality to allocate a big land plot next to the airport, where we create a large vineyard, so that the first thing a guest sees when he arrives is a vineyard. We will give all the guests a small bottle of wine, so they take it back home as a souvenir. We must teach children how to make wine in Georgia. There should not be left a single piece of uncultivated land, where a vineyard could be made. I am really fascinated by wine-making. This is part of our national ideology "- the president said in Tbilisi.
In 2011 president Mikheil Saakashvili bought a vineyard in Kakheti region, Eastern Georgia. The vineyard (half hectare area) costed about 20,000 USD. Construction of a private house next to vineyard costed about 28,000 USD. The president often uses his vineyard house to host foreign visitors.
