The Minister of Agriculture Shalva Pipia has ruled out the existence of any real problems regarding this year’s grape harvest. In a TV3 interview, he pointed out that State interference in the harvesting process has been negligible compared to last year. According to Mr. Pipia, the price of grape was set by two State-owned wineries in previous years. Up to 40 000 tonnes of grape has been bought by the wineries already. The minister does not deny that there are certain difficulties with obtaining the necessary information regarding the sales across the Kakheti region, but in his view, no real problems have arisen due to these circumstances.
