Grape primary processing plant is equipped with the modern, European processing technology, provided by the renowned Italian manufacturer Della Toffola. The processing facility is sited in a 2500 sq.m building on a 1.5 ha territory in the town of Kvareli. The capacity of the primary plant allows Tbilvino to process 5,000 tons of grapes per season. This is the largest and most modern wine primary plant constructed during the past few years in Georgia.
The construction of the primary was made possible though the partnership and support of International Finance Corporation (IFC), who provided a $1.5 million loan to accomplish the project.
"Thanks to the new grape primary processing plant Tbilvino can increase exports and enter new markets. Thus, we plan to increase the total export to over 3 million bottles a year. This will provide full control of the quality of our products at all stages of production, "- says George Margvelashvili, owner of Tbilvino.
On September 4 President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili visited the new Tbilvino factory in Kvareli, and attended the grape pressing process.
