Georgian Wine Companies are Optimistic about Ukraine’s Initiative

02.08.2012. Some Georgian wine market players make first comments about plans of one of the largest wine companies in Ukraine, reports Radio “Commersant". On July 24 the Ukrainian Inkerman wine company submitted nine applications to Russia to register trademarks including three with the names of famous Georgian grape varieties (read more: Inkerman: Ukrainian wine producer to export Georgian wine varieties to Russia).

Commesant notes that Georgian companies do not possess detailed information. As Schuchmann Wines observed, a particular company cannot legally patent a  particular grape variety and Georgia’s  agreement is necessary to start Georgian wine distribution in Russia. According to the company, Inkerman factory’s initiative will be within the legal framework only if  it exports Ukrainian-produced Rkatsiteli and Saperavi to Russia.

Telavi Wine Cellar is optimistic about the initiative of the Ukrainian company. The Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the company explains that if the Georgian wine enters  Russia via Ukraine it will be a good precondition for lifting of 6-year embargo on Georgian wine.
