Tradition of Qvevri Making Granted the Status of Cultural Heritage Monument

The tradition of qvevri making has been granted the status of a monument of intangible cultural heritage.

The order of the Director General of the National Agency for the Protection of Cultural Heritage has already been published in the Legislative Herald.

By order, the National Agency for the Protection of Cultural Heritage has now been instructed to reflect the data in the State Register of Monuments.

Recall that the status of a cultural heritage monument has been granted to the qvevri and qvevri wine.
