Areni Wine Trail

Aremnian wine has been gracing Armenian tables for at least 6000 years--the world's oldest winery was just discovered at Noravank's Birds Cave in 2010! This wine trail takes in both some history but also the wineries that make up the tradition of wine-making in the vayots Dzor Valley.  Though varietals are still in their infancy, they are gaining international notice, especially Areni Country red, Areni Maran and Areni Gedeon, which compare favorably with French table varieties.
