President Saakashvili: "This year we will have an exemplary "rtveli"

06.08.2012. (Hvino News) According to the President of Georgia, in 2012 there will not be any problems with global sales of Georgian wine. Mikheil Saakashvili held a meeting today with the governor of Kakheti Giorgi Sibashvili and head of the Coordinating Center on Rehabilitation of Kakheti Levan Bezhashvili. During the meeting, President noted that this year's "rtveli" would be exemplary.

Rtveli (Georgian: რთველი) is traditional vintage and rural harvest holiday in Georgia accompanied by feasts, musical events and other celebrations, which normally takes place in late September in eastern Georgia and in mid-October in western Georgia.

"This year we must conduct an exemplary rtveli. Hopefully, the grape prices will grow significantly compared to previous years", - said the president, adding that this was partly due to natural reasons. President said that not only the old vineyards need to be restored after the recent destructive storm, but new vineyards must be planted with support of state.

"We never for a moment weaken attention paid to the Kakheti region. Kakhetians should know that we always remember about them. Kakheti should get out of this difficult situation revitalized. In September, we will plant many young saplings there. I myself willl participate in this process with great pleasure,"- said the president of Georgia.
