Irakli Cholobargia, Head of the Marketing and Public Relations Department of National Wine Agency, says that this rating is indicative of the high quality of Georgian wine.

The current conditions were preceded by agreements within the wine industry, the right marketing campaign, and concrete steps taken in recent years to improve the quality of Georgian wine,” he said.
