Exports of fruit wines from Armenia in the first seven months of this year increased by 41%
YEREVAN, Sep 4 – Sputnik. Exports of fruit wines from Armenia in the first seven months of this year increased by 41%. In total, about 6.3 million dollars worth of fruit wine were exported from the country. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced this on Wednesday on his Facebook page.
At the beginning of this year, Pashinyan held a meeting with Armenian winemakers. At a meeting with manufacturers, he noted that Armenian winemaking is undergoing a revival, although problems remain that hamper the development of the sphere. In his opinion, Armenian wine is competitive both in quality and price, however, it often loses to others because of small export volumes. Pashinyan noted that large deliveries are more attractive to potential buyers.
“Honestly, I was skeptical of this production before, but this year, during the wine festival on Saryan Street, I was convinced that Armenian winemakers managed to raise wine, especially pomegranate wine, to a whole new high level, and this product has every chance become a new Armenian brand, “Pashinyan noted.
Recall, on May 3-4 of this year, the “Wine Days” were organized for the third time in Yerevan. During the festival, 25 local producers presented more than 200 types of wine – home and factory. Visitors had the opportunity to taste various wines, buy their favorite drinks at the fair, and enjoy live music. Having visited the event, the head of the Armenian government noted that Wine Days is becoming one of the important brands.
