''The grape and wine industry tend to grow due to the proper policy of the government,'' Georgian Minister of Agriculture Levan Davitashvili said when summing up the year of 2019.
According to him, the successful vintage in 2019 and the increased wine export rate confirm all those mentioned above.
He said the year of 2019 logically continued the progress Georgia has seen in the wine industry in the latest years.
''The wine export, export markets, the number of enterprises and grape harvest have increased,'' he said, adding Georgia showed a record rate in sales.
''The Georgian government will continue caring for the [wine] quality and diversity,'' he said.
In Davitashvili's words, Georgia processed 271,000 tonnes of grapes in 2019 and presented Georgian wines at more than 20 international exhibitions.
