Georgia has a long history of winemaking. The Kvevri (or Qvevri) – imagine a very large amphora without handles – uncovered by archeological diggings in the fertile valleys and along the slopes of the Southern Caucasus indicate that the region’s winemaking activities date back at least eight thousand years.
Lots of design-focused small businesses have emerged in the Georgian market in recent years. But while some owners are experienced, others need to gain more knowledge to succeed in both the local and international markets.
Great things can be achieved by working together. That’s how Mariam Orjonikidze, a Georgian diplomat posted in the Czech Republic, views a series of training sessions on economic diplomacy supported by the EU4Business initiative and implemented by the EBRD.
With over 8,000 years of rich wine-making traditions, Georgia is often called the “Cradle of Wine.” Although it’s a relatively small wine producer, Georgia’s worldwide exports are growing every year.
