Chairman of the Council of SRO “Vinogradar and Winemakers”, Executive Director of CJSC “Abrau-Durso” Julia Parkhomenko.

В России к виноградарству привлекут малых и средних фермеров

Yulia Parkhomenko, the updated law should, first of all, clearly regulate the production of wine and distillates from domestic grapes. For such products, preferential taxation can be established, which will become an additional incentive for development.

The industry can get a positive effect from the growth and development of peasant farms. Thus, since 2020, it is possible to permit the production and sale of up to 15 thousand decalitres of wine materials on the farm. This is three times more than what is allowed now.

According to Yulia Parkhomenko, a lot of legislative work has been carried out in anticipation of future changes in the industry. For example, the Tax Code contains provisions that stimulate the laying of new vineyards and offset the costs of capital construction in winery complexes. The Civil Code enshrines the rule on intellectual property for a protected geographical indication and a protected appellation of origin.

As Kuban News previously wrote, two types of wine made in the Krasnodar Territory won the Lev Golitsyn wine competition that took place in Crimea.
