Counterfeit Georgian wine found in Russia

28.06.2013 (Hvino News). According to the Russian media, counterfeit Georgian wine has been found in Moscow. An article printed in the Novaya Gazeta suggests that Russia might once again place an embargo on the imports of Georgian wine produce due to the counterfeiting. The publication states that bottles without excise marks were discovered in a number of stores, mentioning brands such as Saperavi, Khvanchkara and Kindzmarauli.

Russia’s Sanitary Service will take strict measures if counterfeited or substandard wine or mineral water from Georgia is revealed in the Russian market, said Gennady Onishchenko, head of the watchdog agency Rospotrebnadzor.

"Everyone remembers the situation due to which we took radical measures several years ago. If this situation persists, our steps will be even tougher, "- said the Chief Sanitary Doctor.

17 June 2013 saw the resumption of Georgian wine exports to Russia, following the lifting of the embargo placed in 2006
