    Zorah Wines

    Zorah Winery balances the use of 6,000 year old traditions against modern technology and innovations to make something that is elegant, fresh, and supple - and most importantly, like nothing you've ever had before.
    What can you expect from the Karasi? The pleasure of tasting the exotic and exciting personality of an ancient grape most have never heard of! New to you perhaps, but not to them! Areni Noir is a grape varietal that has been enjoyed in Armenia for centuries. 

  • Jean-Michel Deluc says

    6000 years of Armenian vineyard history

    The Areni, is one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. It is an ancient varietal that was never grafted and with no other intervention in the vineyard. The vineyard itself is at an altitude of 1,400 meters and never touched by phylloxera, and the wine was matured in unique clay pots called karas, hence its name. Here, everything has been done to offer you an exceptional wine. You will appreciate the complexity of aromas and flavors in the mouth - all orginal and unique to experience. With this cuvée you will plunge back into 6000 years of Armenian vineyard history.
