According to the Russian media, counterfeit Georgian wine is being sold in Moscow. An article printed in the Novaya Gazeta suggests that Russia might once again place an embargo on the imports of Georgian wine produce due to the counterfeiting. The publication states that bottles without excise marks were discovered in a number of stores. The talk is of the Saperavi, Khvanchkara and Kindzmarauli brands. The head of Russia’s Sanitation Department has stated that if such cases persist, then more serious steps will have to be taken by the Russian side. 17 June 2013 saw the resumption of Georgian wine exports to Russia, following the lifting of the embargo placed in 2006.
