“Prior to the announcement to us Russian embargo, we have exported to the Russian market 40 million bottles of wine and a profit of up to $ 45 million. Last year, Georgia exported to some 15 million bottles of wine and a profit of $ 60 million. During this period, increased the quality of the Georgian wine, and I think that we should even thank you for this Gennady Onishchenko, “- said as” Interfax “, on Friday, December 30, journalists Gilauri.

According to the head office, this year the export of Georgian wines will be 18 million bottles, and in the future, 2012 will exceed 20 million.

According to the Russian side, the producers of wines and mineral water “Borjomi” had to cope with lots of fakes on the Russian market. The embargo was imposed in the midst of a diplomatic conflict between Moscow and Tbilisi, with the official view of Moscow, Federal Service is responsible for it.
