Georgian wine exports to the U.S. have increased by 7.18% from 2021 to 2022, according to Wines of Georgia, the organization that represents and promotes the wines and wineries of the country of Georgia, and the National Wine Agency of Georgia, the legal entity of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture of Georgia that finances the U.S. program. Located at the intersection of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Georgian wine exports to the U.S. have risen from 881,470 bottles in 2021 to 944,766 bottles in 2022, as recorded over a 10-month period. The sustained growth of Georgian wine exports to the U.S. reflects the agency’s prioritizing the U.S. as a key export market and a goal to achieve wider awareness among American wine drinkers. There are more than 500 grape varieties indigenous to the country of Georgia and the country’s winemaking history spans more than 8,000 years.
