Armenia is one of the most ancient cradles of winemaking. Although no one knows for sure, the origin of winemaking may in fact have its origin in Armenia. In any case, references to the over-3000 year old winemaking tradition can be found in Greek, Roman and Armenian and other early sources, and is substantiated by various archeological discoveries.
Since ancient times the Armenians kept huge wine casks buried in the ground, opening them for festive occasions. Industrial wine production in Armenia has its origin in 1870’s and underwent significant development during the soviet era. The Armenian wine has always been held in high regard, despite its modest exposure. Now the local entrepreneurship and industriousness are fueling the rebirth of wine industry in Armenia in the form of boutique wine production. The traditional assortment of Armenian wines is being introduced to the worldwide market and new brands are being established. According to economic experts, winemaking is now one of the most profitable branches of Armenia’s economy with excellent potential for expansion. There are currently 15,000 hectares of vineyards in Armenia 90% of which is used to cultivate grapes for all kinds of red and white wine production.
Areni Winery specializes in the production of premium dry red Vaiots Dzor wines from the Areni grape. It produces 80,000 - 100,000 bottles of wine a year and also ages its wines in oak barrels for one to three years.
