16.11.2012 (Hvino News). Georgian wine industry leaders made comments in connection with recent signals from Tbilisi and Moscow regarding possible lifting of the ban on Georgian wines and mineral water in Russia.

Giorgi Margvelashvili, director of Tbilvino, stated they have been waiting for recovery of export to Russian market for a long time. He said to radio Commersant that products of Georgian wine companies fully comply with quality standards.

Levan Davitashvili, commercial director of Schuchmann Wines said that if it is an open and free return to the Russian market, it can be only welcomed.

In recent weeks, other Georgian wine companies have also made statements in favour of Russian market. For example, Levan Mildiani, owner of Midiani wine company, said in a Russian television programme: "We are prepared to ship our wine to Russia even tomorrow" (read more here).

Russian Chief Sanitary Inspector Gennady Onishchenko said that 8 Georgian companies are likely to get permits to export wines to Russia. Russia banned imports of Georgian wine in 2006.
