The government of Georgia will subsidize the 2020 grape harvest and the minimum price of grape varieties of Rkatsiteli and Kakhuri Mtsvane will be 80 tetri, announces Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Gakharia.
He also added that the budget is already allocated and in case of extreme necessity, the government will be involved in the purchase of grapes.
“One of the targets of the government's anti-crisis plan is villages, Georgian farmers. We did our best to help these people, to strengthen Georgian farmers during the crisis. In addition, everyone knows how winemaking has been developing in recent years. 2019 was a record year when 94 million bottles of wine were exported from Georgia. The share of wine in Georgian export made up 2.5 % in 2012. Today the rate is 6%. This is very strong dynamic of improvement. The government has taken decision to subsidize the 2020 grape harvest and the minimum price of grape varieties of Rkatsiteli and Kakhuri Mtsvane will be 80 tetri”, Gakharia said.
