Ukraine - Russia's conflict not reflected in export of Georgian wine

22.03.2014. Regardless of the latest strain in Ukraine-Russia relations, Georgian wine exports to these countries don’t face problems so far. Wine producing companies told Georgian Commersant  radio that at this point export to Ukraine and Russia is in progress.

However, Tbilvino's director speaks about delays in certain areas of Ukraine. According to Giorgi Margvelashvili, sales have declined in some regions and partners have problems with timely transfer of money. As for the Russian market, Margvelashvili notes that political events in Russia have not had an impact either on sales or financial transfers. Tbilvino sells 20% of products in Russia and 10% - in Ukraine. Apart from the post-Soviet states, the company's wines are sold in Europe.

Telavi Wine Cellar says that exports to Russia and Ukraine are carried out smoothly. As chairman of the Supervisory Board of the company Zurab Ramazashvili says, pre-order is accepted from these countries. Ramazashvili hopes that the process will continue in the usual way and export of Georgian wine will not be endangered. Telavi Wine Cellar exports to Russia 30% and to Ukraine 20% of total exports. The company's products are sold in 22 countries, including the former Soviet Union and the countries of Europe, America, Japan and China.
