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.
