Conservative Party Protests Cut Off Wine-Yards in Kakheti

Conservative party protests the resolution of the Georgian government issued on November 19 2008. Based on this resolution certain people were allowed to cut off the vine-trees on 150 hectares of land. The owner of the plot will receive a compensation of 2 000 GEL for one hectare of the land.

Zviad Dzidziguri, leader of the Conservative Party, stated that the briefing that according to the resolution entire 150 hectares of wine-yard should be cut off in Kvareli District in Kakheti region. However, in fact 150 hectares of wine-yard is located only in the village of Gavazi in the district.

Dzidziguri claimed that at the moment the vine-trees are cut off on 80 hectares of land; most of them is Rkatsiteli, a Georgian red grape which is used for the production of Georgian red wine.

Conservators intend to discuss the problem at the State Chancellery.

According to Dzidziguri, members of the Conservative Party will demand Georgian Prime-Minister Grigol Mgaloblishvili to explain the situation.

At the briefing Zviad Dzidziguri presented the journalists with the video-recording of cutting off the vine-trees in the village of Gavazi.

“The government blamed Badri Patarkatsishvili, late owner of the TV Company “Imedi”, for having paid money to peasants who cut down vines. Now they do the same. Peasants petitioned to the district municipality board for cutting off the yard; then a group of experts measures the land and after that they are compensated. Davit Varadashvili, Kvareli district governor, supervises the process,” said Dzidziguri.
