Georgia to Host First Exhibition at Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilizations
Friday, May 5As the Prime Minister of Georgia stated during today's Government meeting, Georgia will organize and host the first large-scale event dedicated to viticulture and viniculture at the Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilizations. The event will kick off in late July 2017 and continue for three months. Giorgi Kvirikashvili considers it a significant achievement and an opportunity for Georgia to enhance the international visibility of Georgian culture and wine and the country's potential in general.
"This year, the Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilizations hosts its first winemaking exhibition that will be hosted by Georgia as the cradle of viniculture and a prominent country of wine. It is a very important event. From late July through October, Georgia will team up with Bordeaux to host an exhibition with a variety of introductory presentations, including a great deal of information about our country, our ancient culture, Georgian wine and arts. The Georgian presentation at the exhibition will be officiated by the Minister of Agriculture. Given the event's special importance, I ask all agencies to do their best to work together with Mr. Levan Davitashvili, so that Georgia may show itself at its best. It is very important for enhancing our country's international visibility and introducing our ancient culture. It is a great achievement that Georgia will act as host in the first exhibition year of the Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilization. I congratulate all of you on this success, which years ago may have been unimaginable. Today, however, it is a reality and a great achievement," the Prime Minister stated before today's Government meeting. (gov.ge)
