Teliani Valley, Marani: Every day we receive proposals from Russian importers

29.01.2013 (Hvino News) The largest players in Georgian wine market speak about interest of Russian companies towards their products. Teliani Valley's director Shota Kobelia  reported to Georgian radio Commersant that up to five Russian importing companies expressed interest in Georgian wine, and Teliani Valley received proposals from them. However,  he says  that the talks between the parties are ongoing and no concrete decision has been made.

According to Mr. Kobelia, Teliani Valley has the same attitude towards the Russian market opening as to any new market, which is associated with additional financial income. Kobelia notes  after the Russian market opens  the company plans to export about one  million bottles of wine.

Zurab Ramazashvili, Chairman of Supervisory Board of Telavi Wine Cellar (Marani brand name) also informs that they receive  proposals from the Russian side every day,  and at the moment they are considering them. As Mr. Ramazashvili explains,  in 2006 70% of the company’s share fell on Russian  market and the loss of Russian market created  many problems for the company. So, Telavi Wine Cellar is going to observe the potential of Georgian wine  in the Russian market in the first year and will increase export volume in line with demand.

Mr. Ramazashvili adds that in the case of the opening of the Russian market, Telavi Wine Cellar plans to export about 700 thousand bottles of wine considering the  existing resources. However, if there is growth in demand the company will increase market share.
