How will the price on grapes be set in the wine sector this year? Both the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Wine Agency have stated that the price will not be set by the government, but will be dictated by the market. The director general of the company Badagoni Giorgi Salakaia has told TV3 that wine companies will set the prices on the basis of negotiations with the farmers. He adds that there will not be a fixed price on grape this year, and that pricing will depend on the quality of the product. According to Mr. Salakaia, inspections of vineyards are currently taking place, and the prices on grape are likely to range between 1 lari and 1.5 lari per kilogram. He adds that the Cheap Agricultural Loans program has made a positive impact, with certain manufacturers being able to purchase twice as much grapes as usual this year.
Some manufacturers have stated that there will still be a certain degree of State control of the wine sector this year. They have refrained from making televised comments on this issue, but have stated that the government’s decision to provide financial assistance to companies that purchase grapes at prices of 1 lari per kilogram or more will lead to an artificial price increase.
