The return of Georgian wines to the Russian market has caused concern among Armenian wine-makers. When the Russian government banned the import of Georgian wines in 2006 Armenian wines began to fill the gap in the Russian market. There are also unconfirmed speculations that a certain portion of Georgian wines were transported to Armenia, bottled there and exported to Russia as Armenian wine. Armenian vintners think that the quality of the Georgian wine has become better since 2006 and that Georgian wines will provide good competition for Armenian wines.
