On October 4, 2011 International Finance Corporation (IFC), provided a $1.5 million loan to Tbilvino to establish wine primary plant in Kvareli district of Kakheti region.
IFC’s credit line is a part of Tbilvino’s $3 million investment program aimed to progress the company development. The establishment of the primary plant is designated to augment Tbilvino’s production capacity to satisfy the increased demand on Tbilvino’s wines on export markets, enhance product quality, and boost competitiveness both on local and international markets.
The construction of the primary plant was launched on January 6th of 2012. The processing facility will be housed in 2500 sq.m building on the 1.5 ha territory specifically selected to implement the project.
The primary plant will be equipped with the modern processing line, produced by the well-known Italian manufacturer Della Toffola. The capacity of the primary plant will allow Tbilvino to process 5,000 tons of grapes per season. This will be the first largest and most modern wine primary plant constructed for the past few years in Georgia.
The construction will be completed in August and officially launched in September of 2012.
