"Tbilvino": Russia is an unreliable partner, but the market is definitely interesting

12.06.2012 (Hvino News) - Russia is an unreliable partner, but for the Georgian wine companies the Russian market is unambiguously interesting, - said George Margvelashvili, director of Tbilvino, Business Gruzia reports. He commented on the opinion of the Moldavian expert, Dr. Tatiana Laryushina, who pointed out that Russia re-imposed an embargo upon Moldova in 2010, and, in her view, it was a clear example of Russia being a highly unreliable partner. According to her, embargo on Moldovan wine was purely political measure of Moscow.

According to George Margvelashvili, there is interest of Russian companies to Georgian wines, but the past experience and 2006's embargo would always be considered by the Georgian side. When asked if the Georgian side should take into account the experience of Moldova, Margvelashvili replied affirmatively, and said that the Georgian side should be cautious about the Russian market.

Georgian authorities recently announced that opening of Russian market for Georgian wine is among top priorities for the coming years (read more here).
