Georgia ready to receive Russian experts to examine Georgian wines

25.12.2012 (Hvino News). Georgia is ready to receive Russian experts to examine quality of Georgian wines, Georgian Minister of Agriculture David Kirvalidze told journalists on Tuesday. “If Russia accepts the invitation, Georgia is ready to receive Russian experts and offer all possible assistance,” he said.

According to the minister, later this week, officials from the Georgian ministry of agriculture plan to meet with wine makers to discuss procedures to facilitate the entry of Georgian wines on the Russian market. After this meeting, a delegation of wine makers, officials from Georgia’s Exports and Imports Agency and the Vine and Wine Department will be formed. “We will try to organize a meeting between our delegation and representatives of the Russian side to look into details and a possible date for lifting Russia’s ban on Georgian wine imports,” he said.

Earlier, Mr. Kirvalidze said: "Examination on site is accepted practice worldwide and means more guarantees. In addition, we think on a regular basis (quarterly or monthly)  to officially provide the Russian side with a list of legitimate exports from Georgia as for the wine, spirits and mineral waters... If we will be back [to Russia], it will be a dignified return".
