Who will protect Georgian wine from counterfeiting on the Russian market? The Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili claims that the Georgian wine is not trademarked in Russia. The National Intellectual Property Center Sakpatenti has told TV3 that the process of registering Georgian geographical names that indicate the wine’s origin has already began in Russia. Moreover, the Georgian government has instructed Sakpatenti to hire a legal representative in Russia, tasked with preparing and presenting all documentation necessary for the Georgian brands to be registered and trademarked locally. Also involved in this process are the National Wine Agency of Georgia, and the section for Georgian interests at the Swiss Embassy in Moscow. Following Sakpatent’s requests, Rospatent has already registered six Georgian brands, which are Khvanchkara, Mukuzani, Tsinandali, Kindzmarauli, Tvishi, and Akhasheni.
