Mr. Davitashvili said "there is no country in the world where a wine museum has a status of National Museum; such institutions are established with private capital. For example, in Spain there are up to 60 museums, and all of them are privately owned". This is why the head of Wine Agency believes the Georgian museum as a unique project.
"There are not many similar museums in the world. In our museum the archaeological material of the Georgian wine industry will be displayed. In addition, visitors will be able to familiarize themselves with modern technologies of wine production,"- Davitashvili says.
In his words, currently work on the statute of the museum is underway, which must be approved by the government.
The museum, called "very ambitious project" by Davitashvli, will be built on the Turtle Lake area in Tbiilisi, near the Ethnographic Museum. The museum project will be finalized in the spring of next year. However, neither the exact date of opening nor the amount of project funding are known.
