Georgian winemakers waiting for opening of the road to Russia

22.05.2014. Georgian wine-makers hope that a road connecting Georgia and Russia will be opened on Sunday or Monday.

Director of the  Kakhetian Traditional Winemaking Mr. Zurab Chkhaidze  notes that they are waiting for  the road opening to  immediately restore the export. Moreover, about two-week supplies have been sent to Russia. According to him, if the road is not opened within  two weeks, then they will have to search  an alternative road: the company’s products will enter Russia from  the Azerbaijani or Ukrainian territory.

Director of Dugladze Wine Company Mr. Zaza Dugladze says  that they managed to send one consignment of the product before the landslide in the Darial Gorge while another remains on the Georgian territory.

"We hope that the road will open on Sunday or Monday, but if this does not happen, then we‘ll face problems,”-  Mr. Dugladze adds. In his words, the company is going to send cargo to Russia by plane, which, naturally, will be more expensive.
