How is the export of Georgian wine to the Russian market proceeding, and why have some Georgian products been rejected by Russian experts? Gennadiy Onishchenko, the Chief Sanitary Officer of Russia, has stated that 19 varieties of Georgian wine have been rejected following the lifting of the embargo. The head of the National Wine Agency Levan Davitashvili claims that exports are proceeding without delays, and that over 4.5 million bottles of Georgian wine have been brought onto the Russian market up until now. According to him, several companies have had their products rejected on technical grounds, and they will be given the opportunity to present a renewed case for the products. Export certificates have been issued to 15 Georgian companies thus far, and a further 6 million bottles of wine are expected to reach the Russian market by the end of the year.
The founder of the company Askaneli Brothers has told TV3 that all initial problems with regards to exports have been resolved, and the company’s products are on sale in Russian stores. He added that up to 100 000 bottles of 9 varieties of wine have been exported.
