400 tons of grapes processed in Racha

14.10.2015 (Hvino News). Georgia's National Wine Agency reported that vintage in Racha (West Georgia) is going as scheduled. As of October 13, 400 tons of grapes have been harvested and processed in the region of Racha-Lechkhumi, including 392 tons of Aleksandreuli and Mujuretuli varieties, which are used for production of well-known Khvanchkara semi-sweet red wine. Up to 900 local winegrowers provided their crops. The farmers' revenues reached GEL 2 million.

Like in Kakheti, the government kept promise so the Racha farmers didn’t face the problem with sales, as the state will process all the excess grapes which will not be purchased by private companies. Promises regarding prices also remain valid: the state will pay 5 GEL per 1 kg of conditioned mujuretuli and aleksandreuli, for non-conditioned with  a sugar content of less than 21 degrees – 3 GEL, while for the other grapes – 0,7 GEL.

Vintage is coming to an end in Kakheti (East Georgia), where 133 thousand tons of grapes have been  processed. Income of farmers exceeded GEL 90 million.
