Prime Minister Garibashvili initiates wine museum and National Wine Day

12.02.2014.  Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has proposed an initiative to create a wine museum in Tbilisi and to establish a National Wine Day in Georgia.

Garibashvili made this announcement today at the presentation of "Wine Culture Research Project” at Georgia’s National Museum.

"I am proposing an initiative to create a wine museum. It will become a center where the entire history of Georgian wine will be collected. I am sure this kind of place will attract many Georgian and foreign visitors,” Garibashvili said.

The PM then appealed to the Wine Agency to start working on the museum project.

As for the Georgian National Wine Day, Garibashvili said the day would be celebrated in October.

"I also want to initiate celebration of a wine day on the last Sunday of October. This will help to further popularise Georigan wines,” Garibashvili added.

The first National Wine Day will be held this year on October 26.

At the presentation, Garibashvili said Georgia’s wine industry was extremely important and something that should be celebrated.

He cited the recent events when Georgian peasants cut down vines, and said everyone was obligated to protect and care for Georgia’s vineyards.

"A few uncomfortable incidents have taken place recently. We’ve witnessed how Georgian peasants eradicated vines themselves. It was a tragedy and it will never happen again,” he said.

"This should not be done again in the country of vine and wine and we will not allow it. Our obligation is to care for the development of this field.”

Garibashvili said the whole world is astonished with the high quality and unique taste of Georgian wine.

"The Georgian wine, made in special wine vats, astonishes the world and it is becoming more and more popular. It is not accidental that the Georgian wine vat was granted the status of cultural monument by UNESCO,” he said.
