There are many legends about the origin of the wine, and practically every region, which is engaged in wine making, has its own beautiful story. In Armenia, the chronicle of winemaking is as old as winemaking in the country. According to Greek history, top-quality wines were exported from Armenia as early as two thousand years ago. We suggest you try all the variety of Armenian wines, traveling around the country on a wine tour program.
According to the legend, humanity first tasted wine and felt its magic effect when Noah sipped it at the foot of Mount Ararat.
Archaeological excavations at the sites of the ancient settlements of Arin-Berd, Karmir-Blur, Teyshebani and Elar-Darani testify that the ancestors of modern Armenians possessed a highly-developed wine making culture. Greek historians of a later period, including Herodotus, Xenophon and Strabon, recorded that excellent wines were exported from Armenia to neighboring countries at least 2,500 years ago.
Vivid aroma, rich, original and astringent taste with a velvety texture of Armenian wine…
