19.09.2014 (Hvino News). "This year will be more wealthy; we will protect the interests of both entrepreneur and a wine producer, a vintage will be better this year than it was last year," Prime Minster  Irakli Garibashvili stated while visiting the Coordination Staff of "Vintage 2014" in Gurjaani, Kakheti, on September 18.

As vintage is in active phase in Kakheti, approximately 60 000 tons of grapes have been processed. Pursuant to the decision of the government of Georgia, this year, similar to previous year in order to support vine-growing and wine-making, white grape as well as red grape was subsidized. Based on the analysis of market demand and supply, the subsidy per 1 kg of rkatsiteli is 0,35 GEL, while per 1 kg of saperavi it is 0,35 GEL.

According to the prime minister, properly planned and implemented projects by the Ministry of Agriculture and National wine agency in 2013-2014 became the reason for the successful vintage. Irakli Garibashvili noted that the state company buys the damaged grapes from drought and hail, which is very significant for farmers.

‘'The previous government forced farmers to cut vine, and population had to sell grapes at a very low price. This year, each family received a significant income as a result of grapes sale. In some cases the income reached 100-200 thousand GEL. It represents the result of our state approach and promotes the region to develop,''- Irakli Garibashvili stated.

The Prime Minister also spoke about opening of the Russian market and market diversification. The Vice Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili provided Garibashvili with information about market opportunities in China in the nearest future.

According to explanation of Minister of Agriculture Otar Danelia, the Coordination Staff of Vintage 2014 works 24 hours, and received grapes will be registered in united electronic databases, with support of special software. This year together with quality control of grapes, strict control will be implemented on the utilization of chacha from the factories.

A hotline with regards of vintage also serves to the interested persons during 24 hours at 2 47 01 01.
