An expert's opinion

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.
