Details of Airport Vineyard Idea Still Unknown

25.07.2012. Details of implementation of President’s idea regarding creation of a vineyard on Tbilisi airport’s territory are still unclear. Ministry of Agriculture refrains from commenting on this issue. As early as 2 weeks ago, Commersant  approached to the ministry with the above-mentioned question, but still has not received the answer regarding the President's initiative.

Last May Mikheil Saakashvili, while visiting one of the families, announced that the City Hall should allocate a land plot in the territory of the airport where a vineyard would be planted (read more here).

According to Saakashvili, the territory will be illuminated at night in order for all tourists entering the country  to see the vineyard. However, the land on which the vineyard must be built has not been allocated yet. Agriculture Ministry officials say that private sector must take an interest in the initiative and find the farmers to start vineyard cultivation in the territory of the airport.
