As Georgia's Minister of Agriculture Levan Davitashvili says, the Georgian government has allocated about 60 mln GEL in the crisis budget for the vintage.
In his words, it will allow the government to balance the situation and avoid problems maximally for the vineyard owners and winemakers.
Davitashvili says that the government has not subsidized the grape price recently, but the novel coronavirus pandemic created severe challenges in this sector, and the government thinks subsidies are necessary.
As Minister Davitashvili says, the grape price will not be high this year.
"Super price on the grape is not expected, as resources are limited, and we cannot spend everything to buy grape,'' Minister Davitashvili says, adding Georgia will see about 300,000 tonnes of the grape harvest.
