GEORGIA: Georgian wine gets English news website
Georgian wines have been under pressure since 2006
An English-language online news portal covering wine produced in the country of Georgia was launched yesterday (1 May).
Hvino News will create a single source of information on the Georgian wine industry in English, the website said. Access is free, with the site offering assistance in preparing and editing material.
Hvino is the Georgian word for wine.
Georgian winemakers have been under pressure since 2006, when their biggest export customer, Russia, banned Georgian agricultural produce.
In May last year, the country signed a deal with the EU to recognise each other’s protected geographical indications for wines and spirits. Georgia's protected names include Akhasheni, Gurjaani, Manavi and Tsinandali.
