Moldova Minister of Agriculture and Food Policy Vasily Bumakov said on Wednesday during a roundtable meeting with a Belarusian delegation that his country will start supplying organic wine to Belarus.
Bumakov emphasized to the Belarusian business managers and scientists in attendance that Moldavian wines are of a high quality with no chemical additives are added. He said that the country has a high potential for organic wine production, and that he intends to bring Moldavian organic wines to the European wine market.
During the meeting, which was also attended by scientists from the Moldova Grape and Wine Institute and representatives from Vinaria din Vale, it was stressed that organic wine is more costly to produce because the production does not use artificial fertilizers and chemicals.
Vinaria din Vale has more than half a square mile of vineyards that produce organic wines.
