According to official president's site, Mikheil Saakashvili noted that American guests Ronald and Lisa Semlers had great experience in producing wine, which should be adopted in wine-making in Georgia. According to the president, Georgia is passing through a very difficult period, but this is the issue, on which working should be continued.
The guests visited president's vineyard and tasted Georgian wine made according to European and local technologies. Ronald Semler thanked Georgian president for invitation. He talked with local wine-makers not only about his technologies of wine making, but shared his business experience. He said Georgia was one of the ancient wine-maker countries, and Georgians can be proud of it.
