First Online Georgian Wine catalogue opens under slogan Place for the Best

Monday, March 31
Georgia’s business news and information portal, specializing in wine industry and tourism, has recently started the first online Georgian Wine Catalogue.

Georgian Wine Catalogue is a buying guide targeted at international audience interested in Georgian products, which provides independent rating of Georgian wines.

Since February 1 the Georgian Wine Catalogue has been open for winemakers, who started to submit their products to the database. Leading wine producers Chateau Mukhrani, Georgian Wine and Spirits (GWS), Kakhetian Traditional Winemaking, Tbilvino became the first companies to officially provide product information to the first online Catalogue. Total number of Georgian wine producers whose products are listed in Catalogue so far is 21.

On April 1 the Catalogue will be officially opened to general public. “The keyword of Hvino’s Catalogue is independent rating,” Inge Olsson, project manager at Hvino said.

Hvino’s rating system is similar to international, which makes it easy to understand to users worldwide. The interface can be used in English or Russian, making the Catalogue convenient for Georgian wine fans from former Soviet republics as well as USA, EU, China and other countries.

Currently the Catalogue lists all Georgian wines, which either have won gold medals at international contests, or have been rated by leading international wine rating institutions.

All Georgian wines which have international ratings or gold award winners are automatically added to the catalogue free of charge.

Georgian Wine Catalogue’s slogan is Place for the Best, as all represented wines are winners of the largest contests, or were submitted to the leading wine ratings.

The Catalogue can be used actually while standing by the wine shelf, from any mobile device. It helps to select the best wine in preferred price range. The Catalogue is especially useful when the shop’s staff is less knowledgeable about Georgian products. has been active in Georgia for 2 years, since April 2012. Among other projects, it runs the daily English news on Georgian wine business Hvino News and, at the initiative of Georgia’s National Wine Agency, the Russian-language news service Hvino-Novosti.
