hi all, i been away. but i searched the forum and found this thread.
and whanted to add my "opinion".
first some news about georgia, russian alchol market is where 75 % of georgia alchol is going. with this ban georgian economy is sufferring much.
the prices on grape are ridiculasly lil.
saperavi grape variety last year was : 0.80$ per kg
and now is 0.35$ per kg.
aleqsandouli(from which is made famous georgian brand xvanchkara) was last year 2$ and this year is 0.95$
and rqaciteli last year was 0.45$ and this year is 0.18$
that's just few examples
imagine how hard this hitted peasants.
the reason of BAN :
the reason of ban is purely politacal, Georgia and Russia are now in cold war. so this desision was made to harm georgian economy.
2nd. there is a paper in russia called, "Top Secret" it had an article which said that Federal Service of Security is trying to get it's hands on russian alchol market.
3rd. twice more of georgian wine was sold in russia then was made in georgia! lol that falsification was made in russia so would not it be right to stop falsification there instead of banning georgian wine?
yes and accusations about quality are plain stupid. you guys just don't know what is drunk in russia what kind of vodka, and they don't do anything about it so it's preatty clear quality got nothing to do with this political desicion.
any one whant high quality Georgian Wine?
