National Wine Agency Found Alternative Markets for Georgian Wine

The National Wine Agency  of Georgia has found alternative markets for Georgian wine.

The Agency’s  Chairman explains  CBW that the major markets of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus are good but unpredictable, as it is difficult to predict how things will develop in political and economic direction. George Samanishvili says that they focused on  diversifying to expand the list of countries and not to be dependent on one region. In Samanishvili’s words, currently four  regions have been chosen – China, USA, UK, Japan, as well as Poland and the Baltic countries where Georgian wine has  great opportunities.

Samanishvili explains that  in  6 months export decreased  49% compared to last year and the trend is  likely to continue until the year end. Samanishvili notes that this year’s export rate exceeds the  data for  2012 and 2013.
