The National Wine Agency has started implementing the vineyard cadastre program in 2014. Within the framework of the cadastral program, the concept of construction and functioning of Georgian vineyards cadastre has been elaborated. The cadastral documents were developed, electronic database was selected, where cadastral information will be collected; In Racha-Lechkhumi region 886.9 ha, 5533,4 ha in Kvareli municipality, 5477,9 ha in Telavi municipality and 1818,2 ha vineyard in Akhmeta municipality were registered.
There was no similar system in Georgia before. The cadastre system works effectively in all EU countries where viticulture and winemaking is developed. The existence of cadastral base is necessary for the regulation of vineyards, decision making in viticulture and winemaking, to properly verify the vintage process, to conduct wine production and its movement and for general regulation of viticulture and winemaking.
