20.05.2014 (Hvino News). A special jury has selected 40 participants wishing to participate in the New Wine Festival. The festival organizer Malkhaz Kharbedia, head of the Wine Club, explained that the participants will arrive from almost the whole Georgia. According to him, almost all leading wine companies operating in Georgia will present their own products in the festival.
The New Wine festival will be held at Tbilisi's Ethnographic Museum on May 24.
Kharbedia explains that the main criterion during the selection of the participants was that wine should be healthy. "One of our main goals is to eradicate the problem of weak home-made wines. Wines in many cases are weak," - the Wine Club founder said.
The participation of a new wine festival is free for family cellars while for leading companies a symbolic fee is imposed.
Malkhaz Kharbedia expects growth of festival guests and says that the Ethnographic Museum will be attended by 15-20 thousand people. Kharbedia says that last year 15 thousand people visited the festival.
The New Wine Festival has been held for the fifth time this year. Participants of the Festival will be awarded with special certifications and gifts. A bilingual catalogue will be issued for the festival, providing information on the participants.
