Wine companies do not not see a need for strict quality control: "Political activities are necessary to lift the Russian embargo"

14.09.2012. Part of Georgian wine companies do not see a need for toughening the monitoring of wine quality. Recently "Georgian Dream" opposition coalition named tightening control quality as one of steps needed to return Georgian products to Russian market.

However, Chairman of  Supervisory Board of Telavi Wine Cellar (Marani) stated to radio Commersant that the rate of expansion in the world market and awards won in various contests speak about the quality of Georgian wine. Zurab Ramazashvili noted that other types of political activities are needed to lift the Russian embargo on Georgian wine because the issue is politically biased, and wine quality is not a real reason for closure of Russian market.

Kindzmarauli Marani doesn’t see the need for stricter monitoring either. The company's CEO announces that the existing monitoring mechanisms are sufficient to control the quality of wine. However, Dimitri Lebanidze underlines that the initiative of the Ministry of Agriculture which offered Russia to  conduct monitoring of Georgian wine will be welcomed.
