A rich wine tradition

Armenia is the oldest Christian country in the world where wine is already produced for about 6,100 years. Until today all traditions for producing wine are retained. During the work in the vineyard and cellar everything is done to achieve the highest quality red wine possible. And exactly that craftsmanship and tradition can be found in the flavour of the Armenian red wine. Together with the exuberant Mediterranean sun.

Domestic grape varieties

Due to the high location of Armenia the vine yards are located at a height of 1000 to 1500 meter. On stony and volcanic soils. The Ararat Valley is located in the south west in the main wine region where most grapes are grown for wine production. In Armenia about 400 varieties are grown, but most are table grapes. About 30 native grape varieties are grown in the country and a part of that are used for wine.
