Georgia and the EU recognize each other’s food and wine geographical indications
Although it is a European Union scheme, the system of protected geographical indications is starting to expand beyond the EU’s borders thanks to a number of bilateral agreements. In this case it was the republic of Georgia, in the Caucasus, that will recognize and protect Europe’s ensemble of protected foods while the EU, in turn, will recognize the protected status of 18 Georgian wines.
Georgia is keen to see its status as a major wine producer recognized and, in recent years, lots of effort has been put into promoting its wines, this well-stocked wine shop at Tbilisi effort is an example.
The Georgian wines that are going to be covered by this agreement are: Kotehi, Kardenahi, Hvanchkara, Svyri, Tsinandali, Kakheti, Kindzmarauli, Mukuzani, Vazisubani, Gurjani, Teliani, Napareuli, Athens, Manavi, Tibaani, Ahasheni, Tvishy, Kvareli.
