In the southeastern region of Armenia, in Vayots Dzor, grows one of oldest types of grape in the world – Areni. Coincidentally, Areni is also the name of a nearby village and the annual wine festival that has been taking place there since 2009.
The Areni Wine Festival opens with a spectacular parade of the best wine-makers, followed by music, singing, dancing and wine-tasting, naturally. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover Armenia – or reinforce your passion for this beautiful, warm, welcoming country. No, that’s not just the wine talking.
