Wine has been made in Arminia for over 6,000 years, however, this deep rooted wine culture almost disappeared after years of Soviet rule. We welcome Zorik Gharibian, owner of Zorah, who are helping to revive this ancient wine culture by using indigenous grape varieties and a mixture of old and new wine making techniques.
Zorik planted six hectares of the native Areni grape variety in the Yeghegnadzor valley in southeastern Armenia in 2006, under the guidance of Italian viticulturalist Stefano Bartolomei. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 1,370 metres, close to Mount Ararat and two kilometres from what archaeologists say is the oldest winery in the world, dating back 6,100 years.
Join Zorik for this incredibly interesting Masterclass as we taste through his three wines and learn more about Arminian wine and his journey in wine. (Spaces will be limited to the master class but we will be pouring a special three wine flight in the upstairs bar all evening).
We look forward to seeing you there!
