Wine Professionals from China and Hong Kong Getting Acquainted with Georgian Wine

Wine Professionals from China and Hong Kong headed by Debra Meiburg, director of the National Wine Agency contractor company "Meiburg Wine Media", are visiting Georgia.

During the wine tour, the members of the 18-member group of sommeliers and importers visited wine factories in Kartli and Kakheti. Wine tasting of various companies was also held in Tbilisi, where the guests tasted wines of 54  companies, thus giving Georgian wine-making companies the opportunity to get tips and recommendations from professionals, taking into consideration the specifics of China and Hong Kong. It is noteworthy that the Hong Kong group members are mainly focused on the premium quality and high price category wines based on their customers' interests.

China is a strategic market for Georgian wine and occupies the third place in the list of exporter countries. According to the data of 5 months of the current year, 3 million bottles of wine was exported from Georgia to China, which is 27% higher than the similar data of the last year.
