President Mikheil Saakashvili to open winemakers training center at his own vineyard in Kvareli

12.08.2013 (Hvino News). Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said he will create a training center for winemakers at his own vineyard in Kvareli district (Kakheti, Eastern Georgia). Mr. Saakashvili announced this in Kutaisi, Imereti, while attending the wine festival organized by Presidential Administration.

"Georgia is a land-starved country. If not to invest lots of money, one cannot get a large harvest. Wine can bring a very large income to families. It is the salvation for our families, our culture, our pride. So, for example, in my vineyard in Kakheti, I am creating a training center for winemakers. We will bring foreign winemakers to teach technology and how to market wine..."- stated Mikheil Saakashvili.

President of Georgia is known for his interest in wine-making. In 2011 president Mikheil Saakashvili bought a vineyard in Kakheti region, Eastern Georgia. The vineyard ​(half hectare area) costed about 20,000 USD. The vineyard has two varieties - Saperavi and Rkatsiteli. The president often uses his vineyard house to host foreign visitors (see, for instance: Foreign ministers of Sweden, Poland, Fiji took part in vintage at Mikheil Saakashvili's vineyard).
