Moldova's wine output falls dramatically due to Russian embargo


Moldova's sparkling wine production fell by 53 percent in the first half of 2006 compared to the same period last year due to a Russian ban on Moldovan wine imports. Prime Minister Vasile Tarlev said Chisinau had lost $21 million due to the ban and Moldova's National Statistics Bureau announced on July 31 that industrial output shrank in the first half of 2006 . Moldova's natural grape wine production also fell by 45 percent and cognac production fell by 25 percent in the first half of 2006.
