The 2018 grape harvest is in full swing in Georgia’s wine region of Kakheti.
This will be the first grape harvest in the last 10 years that has not been subsidized by the state.
Diversified markets, increased wine exports and the number of enterprises on the market gives firm reasons to believe that the grape harvest will be successful and organized, Georgian Minister of Agriculture Levan Davitashvili says.
A special grape harvest coordination center opened in Kakheti on August 20.
So far 80 companies have registered in the center that are ready to get involved in the grape harvest process.
Of these companies 23 wine companies are already involved in the harvest.
About 5,000 tons of grapes are predicted to be processed during this harvest. (Agenda/Business World Magazine)
