An exciting exchange program between South Africa and Republic of Georgia, the first of its kind, began this week with the arrival in Cape Town of Tornike Chakhvadze. The Georgian Ambassador Beka Dvali flew in from Pretoria to meet Tornike. The 2015 harvest is currently underway and this is the perfect time for him to gain experience of South African vineyard practice and winemaking.
This exchange was initiated and supported by South Africa-Georgia Chamber of Commerce (SAGCC). It will be followed by a reciprocal visit of a South African winemaker to Khareba Winery in Georgia.
