Georgian wine in Russia again?

Georgian wine in Russia again?

Georgia plans to negotiate the resumption of its wine exports to Russia in the near future, Georgian Agriculture Minister David Kirvalidze said on Thursday.

He promised to meet Russian experts’ demands obliging Georgian officials to take better control of wine, due to be delivered to Russia.

Kirvalidze was echoed by Russian First Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov, who confirmed the two sides’ readiness to settle the matter.

Russia banned imports of Georgian wines and two popular brands of mineral water in 2006, citing the poor quality of the products.
