Passage in zone G, VinoGrad

Wine tourism emerges as an innovative and promising trend within the hospitality sector, serving as a rapidly expanding industry that allures investments and fosters regional growth. In recent years, wine and gastronomy tourism in our nation have elevated to new heights, experiencing continuous development.
Notably, experts predict that the advancement of wine tourism in Crimea and the Krasnodar Region could potentially augment the annual turnover of the domestic tourism industry by a substantial 3.4 billion roubles.
What are the prospects for developing new tourist routes encompassing Russia's wine regions? What practical measures does the government propose to support wine tourism? Do legislative restrictions exist, and how can a proposed law on wine tourism and rural tourism assist winemakers? How can a sustainable demand and increased tourist attraction be created? Is the establishment of a unified map of wine routes throughout Russia necessary? What were the outcomes of the First Wine Tourism Forum?
