“Terjola Wine” to Export 3 000 Bottles of Wine to Japan

Cooperative “Terjola wine” expands its business. Instead of 700 bottles, this year  up to 3 000 bottles of wine produced by the cooperative will be exported to  Japan. Japanese will be able to  purchase a bottle of “Terjola wine” for $ 10.

According to  one of the founders  of the cooperative Gogita Makaridze, production has increased after the cooperative was established  and the costs and  working in the vineyard reduced  at the expense of distributed liabilities among the  members of the cooperative.

Gogita Makaridze first succeeded  in the Wine Fair, where Japanese investors were interested in his family wine. According to him, due to the scarcity of land, he produced a small quantity of wine, afterwards  along with the rest 6 members of the cooperative, took part in the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development. They won the project  and within the ENPARD were given the necessary equipment and machines that  allowed to  increase the cooperative production.

As they say in the cooperative, they produce a bio-product which does not have any chemical additive and is completely natural.

In the future, the cooperative “Terjola wine”  plans to expand vineyards, to increase  the number of cooperative members and turn “Terjola wine” into  a brand.
