"Georgian Qvevri wine is becoming more and more popular both in Georgia and on the international market as well. So, the Qvevri, as a product needs more attention. UNESCO recognition has given us more responsibility. The state has done a lot to promote Qvevri wine. The Ministry has worked and created a Qvevri standard that takes into account its historical memory and heritage. We have worked closely with Sakpatenti and Qvevri is the first non-food product in Georgia to have the status of a geographical indication. This will further promote Georgian Qvevri wine, both inside and outside the country,” Levan Davitashvili said.
