Moldavian winemakers won’t win back their share of market, Ural Spirits claims

'Moldavian winemakers are not going to win back their share of the Russian market. They haven’t come up with any supply offers yet, but we expect them to do this soon,’ Ural Spirits’ Purchasing Director Sergey Lapshin says. He believes Moldavian wines’ price, the competition coming from both foreign and domestic rivals, and no opportunity of getting back on store shelves are the three factors that cancel out any possibility of getting their share of the market back.

'As for Moldavian cognac, things are even more complicated because the demand was supposed to have been restored long time ago, but it still has not appeared,’ Mr. Lapshin said.
