The idea of Wine Report | Russia is extremely simple: deliver importnat information about what’s happening on the fine wine scene in this country. Since the 90s Russia started to freely import fine wines – it was the time when most wine importing businesses were born. How they managed to keep up during these harsh times – this is also a subject for our investigations.

Doing wine business in Russia is not easy and perhaps will never be — vodka lobby, stupid government mismanagement, high taxes and many other factors influence the market in a bad way. Still, fine wine lovers are here and will be here until Russia has wealthy people around.

I hope you will find the information of this web-site useful for your wine business in Russia. And I do hope you will appreciate a bit of sarcasm.

Sincerely yours,
Anton Moiseenko
